CHIMERA TREE

This tree bears both acorns and pecans. The trunks of an oak and pecan tree have grown together here for decades so that they appear to be one tree. At a couple of points, branches from one part of the tree grow right through the trunk of the other part.

This tree is at Toad Suck Park, on highway 60, west of Conway.
