Quercus macrocarpa x (Q. macrocarpa x turbinella) | Davis

Here is a full view of the winter structure of the same tree as the last several pages. The pendulousness of the branches is readily apparent in this view. Unfortunately, close examination shows that the branches are actually breaking along their length. A hybrid such as this does not occur in nature, and the artificial mixing can create unpredictable structure in hybrid offspring.
