I’m out of town this week, and taking lots of plant pictures. Here’s an interesting tree, quite common in the city where I’m staying:
Question 1: What kind of tree is this? (Genus is good enough – species might be hard to tell.)
Question 2: In what geographical region might I be staying? (The tree is native as far as I know.)
Question 3: What are these woody structures called, and what function do they play?
Answers next week!
