Trees with Rounded
You've selected a tree type
with a rounded crown. Now focus on the arrangement of the branches, buds,

is, the twigs or buds are not opposite each other but rather alternate
along the main stem or branch. It's like walking, first your left
foot, then your right foot, and repeat this pattern. Which of the
following patterns of twigs looks most like your tree? Click on it.
