Big black poplar, Portobello, Warwick
I've sometimes wondered why this tree has never been felled. Although something of a landmark it is close to three roads and a bus stop and has a history of shedding big branches. It occurred to me recently that it might be an example of the uncommon native black poplar, Populus nigra ssp. betulifolia. Some detective work is called for. Its size can be judged in this photo from 2009: SP3065 : Emscote Road, Warwick.
