Another Kentucky Coffee Tree (South) - August 2020
Just last week, I mentioned that an arborist that we had come by pointed out a few of the smaller, thin trees on our property were a cultivar called the Kentucky Coffee Tree. Here's the first one that is on our back fenceline.
This post shows the second one - of at least three that I've found so far. It is located on the south mulch border, between the pool/trampoline and the gate to our neighbor's to the south. At the top of this post, you can see the canopy of the tree and below, you can see the bark and the trunk of the tree. I'll be adding it to the caliper list later this year, but it can't be but a little more than an inch.
The trunk is L O N G. And skinny. Just look at it below:
It must be 15 feet tall with no limbs coming off the tree at all until the very top. Now that I know what these two are, I'll start paying more attention to them in the yard. As I mentioned earlier, there's (at least) one more of these that I'll document here.
