Description

Unfortunately the tree was affected by a leaf eating animal (unseen). I noticed the veins on the leaves almost carving the leaf like a relief, and the contrast of the deep red branches. The tree appeared to have had clusters of berries, now dried out and reduced to a dark purple dried hue. The clusters of berries originated where a branch parted in a V to form 2 twigs. I am not positive on the ID, but looks like a dogwood, likely Red-osier Dogwood per this site also called Western Dogwood.
