This tree must certainly be in an urban forest. It has its own window flower box.
Would do fine on Beacon Hill

Rich,

Of late, Ray Asselin and I have been keeping an eye out for weird tree forms. Maybe we should have an NTS contest for the strangest forms.

Ray,
I see a snake with bark on it, but where is the window box?

And to Bob and Ray,
That's wonderful about your new interest! But don't get me started. I have been collecting weird tree forms for years and have abundant photos. I wrote about, and presented images of, some of the truly weird creatures I have seen seen in the woods in a piece I posted here: http://www.slideshare.net/rihiggins/woo ... s-41270585. It is a completely scientific report that unveils a dozen new species that were unknown to modern zoology until I....well that are still unknown.
I can share my archive if you want.

Rich,

Those are great, love the captions. I'd like to see more of those oddball pix... I too had a blog article a few years back (http://timberturner.blogspot.com/2013/1 ... .html#more) that featured a number of tree curiosities. Here's some examples ...
