Madrone or Manzanita tree?

Madrone or Manzanita tree?

Last year my husband and I acquired property in the Santa Cruz Mountains. These are branches John knew I would love to take photos of and use in my garden. If I had known of you Ron then I would have tried to get some of these to you. Perhaps I will scour the mtns for some nice pieces to send you.

Look at these pics and let me know what they are. I say Madrone and John says Manzanita.

Madrone Tree or Manzanita Tree?

Definitely is a Madrone tree... reason? The color of the wood and bark and the way it opens. Manzanita trees do not do that!

Amazing photos Irish Eyes!

Thanks for posting them!
