Inspired by The Riddle - I Could be Used in Many Ways by Conifers :D

My whole is usually shown in a tree.
About my $$1^{st}$$ and $$2^{nd}$$ parts is fond.
About my $$2^{nd}$$ and $$3^{rd}$$ parts, PNGs.
About my $$3^{rd}$$ and $$4^{th}$$ parts, opal.
About my $$4^{th}$$ and $$5^{th}$$ parts, moot.
Right before my $$5^{th}$$ and $$6^{th}$$ parts is a yard.

• Just wanna make sure I get the rules of this riddle right. If the word is "abcdef", the 1st part would be something like "ab" and the 2nd one "bc", is this correct? I also assume they don't have to overlap or be of equal length. – greysaff Oct 4 at 6:11
• @greysaff yes, the parts don't overlap. – Omega Krypton Oct 4 at 6:52

I think the answer might be

Relationship

Divided into six parts as follows

Re, la, ti, on, sh, ip

My whole is usually shown in a tree.

Family tree

Foreland - a landform projecting into the sea

About my 2nd and 3rd parts, PNGs.

Platings - surface coverings in which a metal is deposited on a conductive surface.

Optional

Moonshot - home run that travels a great distance vertically

Right before my 5th and 6th parts is a yard.

Shipyard - my thinking is that this clue is clued the wrong way round as it fits so perfectly otherwise.

Note

I have leaned heavily on the wordplay aspect where "about" is a wordplay clue.
