Chokecherry Tree

   

Chokecherry


Interior west-facing branches of the Choke Cherry
are especially thick with lichens & moss,
as seen in this December photo.

The trunk itself is handsomely mottled in shades of grey.

One big branch of the chokecherry reaches far away from
the main trunk & has an "elbow" that would rest
directly on the ground but that we stuck a large
yellow rock to brace it off the soil, shown here the
next day after snowfall in early January 2004. The large
swordgrass under the tree is evergreen Gladwyn Iris.

A year later, here's that same branch viewed from the opposite side.
