I live in a Chicago, IL suburb and recently bought a new house.
There is a cool tree in the corner of my yard and I have no idea what
It stands about 6 to 7 feet tall.
It's branches grow horizontally outward for maybe a foot or so, and
then almost straight down,
creating a sort of upside down bowl.
It's branches range from maybe 1/2" to 1" in diameter.
It is too early in the spring for the tree to have grown it's leaves,
so I'm afraid I can't describe them.
