A pine tree for a horror movie

Ya' ever seen one of these? it's like a pine tree gone wrong, a mutant pine, or re-imagined by Wes Craven, or sent through Star Trek's transporter and got messed up on the other end. Or all of those.

It's Pinaceae Pinus Attenuata "Knob-cone Pine" a California native, found at the Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.

  1. Very weird. Is this one of those pines that requires fire to distribute seed? That or a really good earthquake?

  2. Sharon,
    Thank YOU!

    Barbarapc,
    Not sure. You'd think a branch would have to fall in order to reseed...
