An "a peeling" tree. Not sure what it is but there were three of them up the estate. It appealed to me because I loved the way the layers were separating, and if you were a nature crafter person the underneath layers would have looked fab on cards or projects.
A birch of some sort looking like this.
The whole height of the tree was peeling and the trunk did look amazing, though the pics were taken with my phone and really do not do it any justice.
