My Neighborhood

What an odd looking tree! Anyone know what kind it is? I suppose I could knock on the homeowner's door and inquire. If I see them outside, I'll ask. In the meantime, any suggestions?

  1. It looks like a weeping evergreen, though I am only guessing and I've never actually heard of one.

  2. I don't have a clue! It's nice to see everything is so green, though :)

  3. Botany and horticulture are NOT my fields. It looks very unusual, though.

    Thanks for your kind comments on STL CDPB recently. I'm very happy to hear that you have overcome health problems and are back with us. You're one of the most delightful members of our community.

  4. It is some kind of weeping evergreen but it must be grafted to a trunk. I have no idea.

  5. Absolutely not a clue, sorry I can't help you.

    Glad to see you're back. And in good health I hope. Take it slow and easy for a quick recovery. Nothing like a good walk for what ails you.

  10. Hello Kate! I've checked in my "big book" and the only photo that could be like this little tree is a "Schinus molle" . But it's said it's a tree for mild climate... So, I'll be very interested in more informations!

  12. I think it has a cartoonish look to it too.

  14. I may be mistaken, but I do believe this is a 'weeping larch' tree. I have a neighbor down the street that has something very similar to this that works at one of the Buell's growing farms. It is a most interesting plant, or was it considered a tree?
