I like how these trees are growing at the Botanical Center. It reminds me of the kind you might find in a swampy forest. I do not know it's variety name.
The roots remind me of the swamp trees that you see at large jungle zoos. It is a strong vertical statement. I am sure you couldn't see the forest with these trees in front of you.
Kilroy was here! I don't know how kids or adults can carve into trees while inside a large garden center without feeling a little bit concerned about getting caught. It isn't like they are in a bathroom stall with the door closed. Anyway this is the base of these trees on the back side where no one is watching.
