Sorta-daily shots taken by a former San Francisco Bay Area, now Oklahoma City resident. I'm back to daily shots!!
It's hard to tell without leaves or flowers - there are so many different orchards in the area. The Nut Tree used to be quite a nice roadstop eatery when I was a kid. Central Valley farmers could even fly in to the airstrip to have dinner, then out again.
Pecans comes to mind. There is also a reason for painting the trunks but I am so old I forgot. I am not saying for sure these are pecan trees but that seems like it might be.I hope you have a nice week.Abraham Lincoln in Brookville, Ohio.
They usually paint the trunks with a compound that keeps insects from burrowing into the bark.
I, I say son. What you got yourself there is a walnut tree, son. They take the heartier root stock of a black walnut tree and graft on an english walnut for the fruit wood. So you get a rough barked bottom from the black walnut and a smoother barked top from the english walnut. The white stuff is white wash. It stops the bark from sun burning/scalding, stopping the tree from prematurely coming out of dormancy, and/or stops the trunk from checking due to un-even heating on frosty winter days (the sun heats up one side of the trunk and it expands faster than the cold, shady side causing the wood to split/crack/check.
