This tree conveys a friendly personality, despite its torturously twisting branches and odd humps. It doesn't seem scary, maybe because it had somehow hung on to its leaves, and they retain much of their green color, in defiance of the season. They are a bit ragged, but still hanging on. Maybe it is just so odd a shape that it has gone beyond "Halloween tree" and become a "Dr. Seuss tree", all shaggy and lumpy and spiraling out of control in this very happy and appealing manner.
