Thank you, your reply brought a smile to my face
The larger shovel is the typical size. The little one has a 3 foot long handle and is the garden transplant hole digging-est thing ever. The kids love it.

Is the plant in question does it have bark, shed leaves every year, come up from the ground or what?

Does it have bark? No - see picture. Yes it sheds leaves every year. It starts producing leaves a few weeks earlier than oak trees (Like an Elm) and has leafs until November. 14 foot tall and wide. It could be a bush or ???

So these trunks dont die back to the ground but have no bark?
Not even a smooth bark.
How odd.

Trunks stay intact. The closest thing I can compare the trunks to is a crepe myrtle.

There are storms in the area. I'll try to get more pictures. I'm thinking it is more of a huge vine-like plant... it's different.

Leaves look very close to a type of fig but not exactly.
You have points on them but I haven't looked at every pictuer.
Still haven't ran across my book.
I have a lot of books.

It is starting to rain, so I didn't use the expensive Sony camera. This is the only clear picture that my old Nintendo DS took. It is a small branch compared to most of the rest of them.

I just remembered something from the decade of brain fog (2000 through early 2010 when the pain specialist had me taking opioids 24/7) We used to have a bird feeder there. The seed that started that plant could have been one of those bird seeds. This picture reminded me of this.
