Bite your naughty tongue, Geoff!

Back to the word "bole", isn't the term "a boled tree" used in the nurseries for a young sapling that is dug out and whose roots with the soil and all is wrapped in burlap ready for transport to garden centers?

And then there are polled trees, aren't there? Ones that have the upper branches cut off kind of flat?

I'm persistent here, I know--but I wonder whether you could poll a bole?
