Candidate for ugly tree contest
Yep, as far as trees go, this one is an abomination. I pass it almost every day when I drop off my kid at the Washington Street Education Center in Chelsea. It's a glossy buckthorn, Rhamnusfrangula, which means not only is it ugly, it's progeny are probably shooting up at an unholy rate in the woodlands nearby. God help us.
