Going back a bit in time now to Autumn and trying to play catch-up. This tree or what's left of it is on the hillside just below Caynham Camp.
Perseverance and a will to live. It always amazes me how a tree can come back after having so much removed. Nice catch

Well, I have this kind of haircut myself on harsh morningz - except that I'm a brunette ;-)
Love that crooky tree and your colors, treatment & grain are so fine* Thank you...

Wow!! That looks like an incomplete tree. Nice shot, nice tones :)

What an extraordinary tree to grow like that, but it is a superb shot, and the image is excellent.

What an odd-looking tree. Cut back and reclaiming life? I love it. Gorgeous image!

What a strange-looking tree! I'm not so sure I'd say it's beautiful, but the photograph certainly is. I love the colors of the fields and stormy sky.

What a great capture, my friend !! the subject is just fantastic... it's funny, but when I look at this picture, what comes to my mind is this famous line from the Jourasic Park movie "live will not be denied and it will always find a way...", or something to that effect.
Anyway, if you don't mid, few sugestions about the composition:
1. you placed the subject smack in the center, the viewer's eye doesn't have any way to go...
2. because the branches extend to the left from the trunk, I would place the subject (the tree) against the right edge of the photo,leaving some open space to the left, thus allowing the eye to flow from the trunk, through the branches, to the the empty part, and back ....
3. If you have a chance, go back to this tree, because it is so unique, and shoot away, maybe, right now you can catch it without leaves or, perhaps at sunset and render it black & white, or change the ange, lay on the ground and shoot it towards the sky...
you have a fantastic subject here, and my main point is... have fun !!!!
good shooting my friend...

@Roman: Cropped out the right side with my hand. I take your point about it being more comfortable for the eye to circulate within the frame. It is more compositionally sound. I return to Caynham Camp regularly so will certainly keep my eye on this tree and bear what you say in mind. Thanks for taking the trouble to make such a comprehensive comment.
art follows form. beautiful photo.

This looks like a tree that snapped in a storm a while ago and has refused to give up. We've got something similar in our garden with a huge truck, and delicate leaves at the top, but we cut it back regularly as it gets in the way of the satellite dish when it grows too tall! Personally, I love both of them (yours and mine) - they are so different to the norm and full of character.
