As I suggested in a blog some days ago one of our neighbours had tagged his trees indicating which trunk was to be kept. This is what the grove now looks like.
In common with many owners the number of trunks has been cut down to one. This results in a good source of wood for next winter as well as much more growing space for the remaining trunk. If you imagine the picture with three trunks for each tree then there would have not been much sky showing in the shot before.
