I am issuing a challenge to you all.
The boy and I were out the other day and we came upon this tree. This tree is a thorny tree. It has thorns growing right out of the trunk. I did a bit of googling to find out what kind of tree this is, but I couldn’t find it. I have ruled out the Hawthorn tree.
I do know that this tree is about 50-75 years old. It is small in diameter, but it is a good 40 feet tall.
This is the best picture that I could get of the thorns growing straight out of the trunk. These thorns in turn seem to become the branches.
It is a spindly tree.
And the leaves are kind of oak like.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find out what kind of tree this is and report back in 12 hours. This message will self destruct in 5 seconds.
