I’m not sure what species this is, but whatever it is, this tree has grown tired of supporting itself and decided to rest its bum on this stone pillar instead.
I pass this guy often on my way to the cafe up the street. I’m guessing this tree sprung up on its own - I doubt anyone would plant a tree that close to the pillar intentionally. Either way, the tree is slowly taking over.
I’ll check in with this guy when it’s in leaf so I can figure out what species it is. Until then, grow steady my friend.
