Snowpeak and I saw this odd tree on a hike a year or two ago.

About 30 feet up the tree a different type of tree was growing out of the trunk? branch?  It was difficult to determine where the other tree took root.   It would be interesting to know exactly how it happened.

That's interesting.  That one was at about 9,000 ft of elevation.  Someone around here can probably identify it, but not me.  With only a few exceptions they all just look like conifers to me.   ???

At about 400' near here. Was in an Arboretum so tree might not be native.

ahh, so maybe you could talk to the people about the most likely way it happens.  I'm guessing a critter dropped a seed into a joint of the limb/trunk of the host tree.

Maybe, but I'm not assuming it's a different species and not part of the tree.

My hunch is it has to do with pollination. I dunno tho.

It certainly looked like it was a different species to me.   We used to have a tree expert dude hanging around here, but he has not been around for ages.  Oh well, it will remain an unsolved mystery.
