What is this tree?

baileybearMarch 14, 2011

Could someone tell me what this tree might be. It is a desert tree in Phoenix. Not uncommon. Reminds me of the Palo verde but has fern like branches. It is those fern like brancehs that I like.

I can never find anyone around when I see one. Whatever the tree is the cold did not affect it. It does seem to have a similar growth pattern as the Palo verde.

I looked through a tree encyclobedia and I can't find it. No close up of those fern like branches off the big branches.

Did I give enough descriptiion? Thanks for any information you can provide.


Have a great day!!!!
