Framework  - Framework is the basic structural design of a system.  Architecture is the complete design of a system.  The trunk and major branches determine the tree framework.  The leaves, twigs and the overall shape of the tree determines its architecture.  Some trees are so strongly programmed for their framework and architecture that they will grow the same way in the open as in the natural forest.
