While observing trees, we often come across what we'll call tree anomalies or oddities - anything out of the ordinary related to tree growth, bark callusing, burls, roots or strange branching on trees.

Below is our collection of tree photos, a photo collection we'll continue to build in the coming years as more tree oddities are discovered and captured with our digital camera.
