Palo Verde

Palo verde tree, Colorado Desert
Although the palo verde has leaves only in wetter times, cells in the green bark can also carry out photosynthesis, or food production. The seeds are food for a type of beetle larvae--look for the small exit holes in the pod. In turn, a wasp feeds on the larvae before all the seeds are eaten, thus ensuring future palo verde trees.
