    I'm not sure what kind of tree it could be; possibly a eucalyptus? The garden/cemetery has a plaque stating that all of the plants are native in origin. This is about 75 miles from where I live and well out of the desert. Outside of the desert my botanical knowledge is reduced to - tree, bush, sticky thing.
