Several years ago I bought a tree called a cork bark tree. It had small leaves, not needles, and the trunk and branches had a scale-like brown texture. The tree was small, less than 3 feet, and grew very slow. Unfortunately, I lost it several years ago in a particularly hot summer. I have looked and asked about this tree for several years but no one knows what I am talking about. Can you help?
I am not certain but I believe you are referring to a cork oak tree. Here is a link for your confirmation:
