    It's bark!

    That's about as far as I go, though. Maybe a Fraxinus?

    Definitely not dog bark, though.

    Maybe Sambucus nigra?

    Could it be a weathered fallen tree? Although bark does seem more likely.

    definitely a fallen tree with the bark still attached. also has some lichen or moss growing on it. are you looking for an id for the tree or the growth on it?

    Doesn't need to be fallen, could just be a horizontal branch!

    Or the photo put in sideways to make it look fallen. :)

    I think it is fallen because of the way moss is growing. Looks like a soft tree that has a limited life.

    Exactly! It's a huge horizontal branch, which belongs to a beautiful, healthy, but very old SHRUB... so it's not a horizontal Fraxinus! :) (And not Sambucus...)

    Hi Lila.
    Please post a pic of this "Tree".
    Everyone must have thought me a raving lunatic to suggest a honeysuckle! But you are right, we did indeed see this when we visited the wonderful Vacratot Botanic gardens in your beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary.You clue pointed me in the right direction!
    It was early spring, and if I remember correctly the leaves hadn't opened. We must have walked past it several times ignoring it, photographing other Lonicera. It then dawned on us that we were in the honeysuckle collection, and we read the label on the venerable old tree. Amazing, we had never seen anything like it before.
    Before posting I looked through all our pics of our visit, but sadly couldn't find one of it. Perhaps it was a rubbish pic and I deleted it.
    Congratulations on the ideas you had, to teaze us all with these 10 stumpers.
    I shall look forward to more.... sometime in the future.
    Well done!!!
