Here are some additional photos of the tree, but I can certainly tell you that it's not a variety of poplar:

As for the today's warehouses location, it's that heavily guarded field in front of the farm's orachard, the one which serves as an exist from the causeway for Allies. Also, if you follow closely the road near the farmhosue, you'll see that there are some more in place of the orchards on that hill beyond the farm.

Crap! Busted. I dabble. Geek time. The tulip poplar is a huge tree. The biggest trees east of the Missisippi. They are called tulips because the leaf resembles well, a tulip. TinyTulipPoplarLeaf-709011.JPG The sycamore has a leaf that looks very much like a maple. But also comes with spikey balls like a sweet gum. Like this: plaoccts.jpg The dead giveaway is Allen's "Garden Nearby" photo. Sycamore type trees have white/green/grey bark that sheds, is smooth to the touch and looks like "camoflage". The tulip poplar has typical hardwood bark with deep verticle troughs. When left alone the Sycamore would get broad and fat. The tulip will go extremely tall, strong with noi limbs until many feet up. Again though, this is European flavor so I'd step aside for someone more familiar. coco19.jpgSycamore old%20tree.JPG Tulip Poplar. /geekery!!! Allen. Is the town at the farthest end still look like that? And are ther those orchards? ***edit. Damn I spent too long on that Allen snuck in there!

Lordy, stylie a botanical things geek? Well, I geuss this could be it, apparently they let them grow after the war, but as you can see on that drawing by some soldier, on my map's loading screen, they were cut regularly back then, reassembling way they treat willows in Poland. I don't know, because by the time I reached the causeway I was short on time, and turned back near that closed canal thing. To be honest, now I regreat it, because I could have spent more time there instead my later visit to Villers Bocage which didn't bring any results as I couldn't find anything specific. I'm sure it's not the last time I visited the place though, so there's somethign to look foreward to.:)

Anyway, my mother says these are Platanuses, but I'm not so sure, because if you look closely at the pictures, their branches and leaves somewhat seem to be more hard, stiff and croocked.

To be honest, there's very little ammount of new houses, especially if you go closer to Cotentin peninsula. Generaly, Normandy looks very nice, somewhat untouched by very rapid progression, but adjusted to modern times instead.
