Last year, we had a weird growth pop up next to the Englemann. Rob thought it was part of the tree, I thought it might be a phoenix rose. Rob was right, as you can see in this photo the shows how our trunk is splitting into several arteries.
Here is Rob, a year later, posing next to that growth, which is now the tallest part of our tree.
Rob is over six feet tall and the Englemann is supposed to be slow growing. Yeah, right.
