Boojum Trunk

 It is hard to decide whether this is really a tree or just a very large unusual plant. Its scientific name is fouquieria columnaris and the the only related plants are the ocotillos. The name came from Lewis Carroll's poem, "The Hunting of the Snark." They seem to be only trees in the general sense that upright plants with limbs are trees.
