G-N-A-R-L-Y ! ! ! ! !

Doesn't this tree look like it should be in Harry Potter or the the Hobbit??? It's actually a pepper tree with it's foliage quite thinned out...there's debate as to what has caused the gnarly trunk...some tumors like this on trees start from an infestation of bugs, some because they're trimmed at the start of a branch...but try as I might on google and at the local nursery, I couldn't find a definitive answer as to what it is....any suggestions???


  1. Don't look at it! It's eeeeeevillllll!!!!!

    I have no idea what does this to a tree, but you sure captured some great shots!

  2. Thanks Laurie!!! I'm starting to get the "oh, that's a great shot...gotta go get my camera" thoughts!!! I drove past this...drove home to get my camera (and the dog), went back and took it....but I learned one thing...when the dog is in the truck, I can't use the truck as a brace, cause when she breathes, she shakes the whole truck!!!!
