I cut into a piece of white pine that Mark (@Mr. Peet) gave me last year and that had been drying in my attic since Jan '18 and I noticed I had, just by chance, made a perfect cut to show an adventitious bud. I show those on several woods on my site but they always are embedded in the wood. This time I got a pic of the unformed branch itself just sticking out as a little nubbin so I thought I'd post it on my terminology page. Just to make sure I had the terminology right, and possibly to pick up some more pics from the Internet, I went searching for the term and ... NUTS! It appears that this is NOT, near as I can tell, what is generally meant by the term "adventitious bud". So, if that's not the right name for this construct, WHAT IS? Anybody know? Mark, you've called it "adventitious bud", as, for example, in this thread https://woodbarter.com/threads/wood-id.36411/#post-499494 among others and I've used the same term in other threads here as well. Do you have a good source for that terminology? All the sources I can find seem to mean something a bit different by the term. The white stuff surrounding the unformed branch is just dust from my sanding.
