OK so, what made you think that the Peppercorn tree, an invasive species in Australia, is capable of doing such a thing...?

Are you sure...? you still have another guess.

PS: what is happening with everybody else...??? no one wants to play..?

Cheers
George

I'll venture a guess, or three.

1. Eating a fence. The shape reminds me of a slide from a trombone.

2. Tree type guesses:
Willow-12
Cork tree-24
Tortuosa-33

I would add a clever response but I can't top Ed's. Thanks for making me laugh.

Sorry, it ain't any kind of Pine and any of those items this tree can eat without any problems, I have found all sorts of things in them and I've destroyed many chainsaw chains and bandsaw blades as a result, the last one I had a steel peg and a couple feet above, a damn shoe horse that messed up my brand new 26" chain into an unusable/unrepairable state.

The problem with these "ornamental" type trees in people's backyards are a magnum for hanging all sorts of things on them and "shove" "STUFF" on the trees forks at lower level, nails, screws and steel pins are left behind and the bigger stuff is forgotten, years later, they are gone/disappeared...!

Uncle George has a natural ability to find these things with his tools...!

Cheers
George

You've got the tree species all wrong sorry but, you are correct about what looks like, it could have been but is not...!

As for topping up Ed's "responses", you would surprise yourself with the stuff you could come up with if you tried...!

Cheers
George

I see no "curtain" so it couldn't be a Curtain Fig tree, sorry.

I'm sure the tree in the pics would eat a sack truck/dolly, no problem but, ain't it...!

Well the bark matches up and after research the tree is actually capable of this and finally I'm not one who's going to disagree with a tree expert like yourself 😉 so rightly or wrongly I think I'll stick with my answer.

Hahahah, no your answer is incorrect but let me tell you something, there are no other tree species in Australia with as much fence wire inside of them as the Olive trees, why...? because in the old days our European colonizers started by planting Olive trees as fence boundaries and later, wire fences were erected between these trees as if they were fence posts and off-course, after many years, the wires wrapped around the trees trunks started to become embedded in the trees were only the wires coming out of it are/were visible.

I can still today find many of these Olive trees with wires coming out of them and if they were spikes

Cheers
George
