That said, like the good Doctor said, trees are like the rest of us, some of us are just a little weird. Guess you got some weirdos over there!


The leaves are also different.


As mentioned it could be something unique and individualistic about these trees. The maples could be sensitive to being called weird, so I will call them special! 😜

I actually look forward to seeing the leaves on the trees each year and some of the leaves are still on in April. They show up in a number of pictures and videos over the years.
