A Dutch pollard willow / Голландская ива

Olympus Stylus 1s, 33mm, ISO100, f8, 1/80s

I don't know how to translate "pollard willow" in English or "knotwilg" in Dutch to Russian.

It is a willow tree that is cut down every year, and the thin and strong twigs are used for brooms and basket weaving.

Is there a Russian word for such a cut willow tree? "Вырезанная ива для плетения корзин" is a bit long 8-).

I've never heard about such willows, but who knows, may be there is some name for it 8)

They are actually "mined" for their twigs every year, surely some Russian somewhere must have had the same idea 8-)?

In our town, they are cut off old poplars in this way so that they do not fall their branches when the wind is strong

But no use for the twigs? Anyway, I will call it a "Вырезанная ива для плетения корзин" for now. A bit long, though 8-).
