He needs a clutch
I spotted a Tembusu tree in the forest walk near Alexandra Arch. This tree specie is one of the most distinctive in Singapore. It can grow up 10m high.
The tree could be distinguished with its unique perpendicular branches and it has an ability to survive in poorly drained clayey soils. Apparently, this tree in the picture shows sign of growing downward, as it it’s carrying a clutch of its own. This could be helped by the exterior support or may be this is nature’s unique way of survival!

Did I misread what the “m” was for? Is it meter? Mile? lol, should have asked that first. Still the idea of a ten mile high tree… OMG!
