It's about to get real ugly here. Got home just in time
I think it is. I've never seen a tree like this until I moved here. We call it a cigar tree. Never saw any catpillars either. Maybe the chipmunks eat them.Can't tell for sure but that looks like a Catalpa tree in your yard. If so, does it ever get big fat catipillars on it? They are great fishing bait. Sorry for twisting the thread out of whack.
