Tree looks like Finding Nemo

FINDING Nemo may have been difficult, but you shouldn’t have any trouble finding Tree-mo.

That is the nickname for a bizarrely-twisted tree at In-Ex Garden Centre in Goffs Oak, which has grown to closely resemble the loveable clown fish from the Disney animation Finding Nemo.

Tree-mo, as the work of nature is now referred to by the girls in the centre’s cafe, has now become somewhat of a national attraction, with the country’s media flocking to the site on Goffs Lane to take a snap.

Cafe worker Karen Ryan told the Potters Bar Edition: “We had a new chef start here and he came in one day and said a tree outside looked like a fish, before that no one here had even noticed.

“My son has always said it looks like a fish, and now everyone agrees!”

The way the trunk twists creates a fish-like face on one side of the branch, which can be seen by drivers and pedestrians alike on the road with gaping holes creating a mouth and eye.

Despite the tree aptly being placed at a garden centre, there is nothing fishy about the circumstances and fellow chef Julia Clark revealed how some national media outlets have also been fascinated.

She said: “We had someone from the Daily Mail here and also the Daily Star, so he has become a bit of a celebrity!”
