palo verde

I was intrigued by the Palo Verde trees we saw in AZ. These are short, stocky little trees with green bark and foliage so small they look like just bare twigs unless you get close
There was another kind of tree about the same size that also had tiny, hard-to-see leaves but dark, nearly black bark. They all looked dead unless you got a closer look. I think those were Mesquite.
