Can't See The Paper For The Trees

Just incase you've forgotten that paper comes from trees here is a tree with papery bark. This is variety of Acer, the name of which escapes me, renouned for its unusual bark. The main trunk had its bark rubbed away by eager hands but the higher boughs had a plentiful covering of paper. It certainly stood out from the crowd.

I've seen paper trees in Mauritius. It's so amazing to touch the bark.
