La taille des arbres

I remember that some of you wondered about how the trees in the palace grounds and elsewhere in Versailles get their "haircuts" for the perfect alignment... This is how! These photos were taken on Saturday in the palace grounds, the second one looking from Matelots entrance towards Saint-Antoine gate which I had shown you here.

Je me souviens que certains lecteurs se demandaient comment les arbres du parc du château et ailleurs dans la ville obtenaient leur "coupe de cheveux". Voilà comment ! Ces photos ont été prises samedi dans le parc du château, la seconde c'est la vue depuis la porte des Matelots vers la porte Saint-Antoine que je vous avais montrée ici.

Such a beautiful place!

Those are some tall trees.

Yet there are so many beautiful roads in rural France with stately colonnades of trees with arched, cathedral vault peaks. Who needs a barber?

They get professional salon treatment! Very lovely top shot and also what a view below, sigh...

c'est sympa (a faire ca doit bien tirer dans les bras), et tu as souvent une vue sympa depuis ces élévateurs (fait deja une serie depuis un elevateur comme celui la).
Beau panoramique

Both photos are really cool, that's a neat machine for keeping things pruned.

That makes life easier for the tree trimmers!

The hydraulic genie... such a good invention. :)
Love how bright the greens are.

I also like the first, but the second picture is absolutely great!

A hazardous work for an aesthetic and functional cut.

Loree said...

Even trees need to look good :)

Diane AZ said...

The lift makes it easier, but still a hard task, they look great!

This explains a lot!

That makes things even and nearly perfect.

Hey, I like this. I also wondered about the trees. You can come walk in our woods any time, but maybe not today....

Ah! I knew there had to be an easier way Ciel. Makes my hedge trimming look pretty insignificant though :)
