I walk past this tree every day, in the northern Midwest, and I am confounded by it. It starts off at the bottom like any normal oak or maple tree (I don’t know my trees). Then about 10 feet up it turns white, almost like it decided to try being a birch tree for awhile, and never went back. I’m pretty sure that’s not how trees work though. So what’s up with this?
I took this picture of it last year and found it again this one has leaves. imgur doesn’t do a good job of compression though.
