Anyway look like it needs lopping but your suppose to ask the Elder Mother first: 😀 Elder Mother - Wikipedia EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG Various farmers have told me over the yrs that they hate them growing in there hegdes as there basically seen as "evil" etc didn't really understand why as no explanation was given,. maybe its some vague folklore memory past down.... Thought it was pretty odd... One guy went round his land round chopping them all down... 🤔
  11. Looks abit like a elder to me but surely thats too obvious & it would have berries? Leaves look slighty different than an elder maybe but the dead bit of wood @ rear & growth habit overall looks very elder-ish
