A Bucida tree will never turn you down

I got to know Bucida molineti tree since the day I shifted here some 12 years ago.  At that time, it was a man with the height of his childhood.  But then, he’s as tall as a four storey apartment now, and I’m sure he is holding an important role in decorates our neighborhood landscapes.

Attracted by this lovely tree, right from the sleek silhouette to the elegant exterior it portrays.  The tiny arms and the leafy evergreens express himself in a refine and delicate manner.

Leafs are gently small compared to the size of the body.  By saying that, he seems like standing on a moderate path, offering the blue sky to us and at the same time shading us from the cheerful bright sun.

I like walking on pavements shaded with these trees, under their widely open arms.  Sometimes, the dropping leaves may accidentally got stuck on my glasses, but the kiss of it is so light and soft that I felt like it’s the teardrops of the tree.

Taking a second look at it, does it strike a chord on you?  Yes, it looks like an upside down Christmas tree.  So the next time you bump into one, ask him “where have all the Christmas trees gone?”  I believe his answer will never turn you down.

    What a beautiful avenue to walk along and you’re right, it does look like an upside down Christmas tree.

      The one I captured can’t get the hundred percent feeling, but if you log on ‘Bucida molineti’ , the upside down Christmas tree could be more obvious! 🙂

      I’m not sure about your home town, this tree is quite commonly seen in my country.

    A beautiful tree without any striking flowers,has been promoted and planted aggressively in recent years in the northern part of Malaysia,especially as a landscaping trees lining the road sides,in sungai Petani,Kedah.But thedry leaves and its seeds falling onto the grounds need a regular sweeping to maintain the cleanliness of the roads.
