What kind of a tree would you be?

My mother never saw the irony in calling me a Son of a beech,

but I don't see myself as a nut.

The Whomping Willow of course! Did you see any of the Harry Potter films? If so then you'll know why. This is a tree with attitude.

I always thought Hickory was a sexy name for a guy

I'd like to be a redwood and watch the years sgo by (preferrably in Yosemite or Big Basin). But being a willowy pepper tree might be nice too. The old Norse legend says women were made from the ash tree and I have a beautiful golden ash outside my back door.

I think you lost me at Jack, but this is odd! I just posted with the word nutty and read this quote today:

Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.

Surely, I'm an Oak then... and the twisted kind that you see often in the south, too :)

A huge open old apple tree. I would have most beautiful blossoms in the Spring and delectable fruit late summer to fall. I would be loved by humans and wild-life alike. Hopefully the deer would feast on my droppings(oops!) from fall unto winter; providing them with some good nourishment to see them through when the snow covered grounds are hiding their food.

My play on words was the motive but your answers are all good.I really would have to go with some kind of nut.

Sweetgum. They have the most gorgeous fall foliage, and then hang on to those leaves forever. And they have those weird round spikey seed pods.

By default..a swamp Cyprus.

Why?

Because I have knobby knees and little critters nipping at my ankles. LOL

Default - Pine. My maiden name was Pine. My dad called us the Sugar Pines. I have no clue as to why he fixed on a pine tree (Pinaceae Pinus lambertiana Dougl.) that grows on the west coast. He was from Louisiana. He took part in the CCC camps as a young man - planted thousands upon thousands of pine seedlings in the south.

I don't like pine trees - they fall over on my rosebeds for no good reason at all.
