what kind of tree has smooth bark and round leaves in arkansas?
« on: November 23, 2011, 04:23:01 PM »
The closest I could come up with online is birch or red alder, neither of which grow in northwest Arkansas (I think). Any ideas?

American beech, buckthorn, young basswood.

I think someone brought this up before with some buckthorn photos that Dodgy ID'ed.

Photo from that thread.





Beech and basswood don't darken on exposure after being cut.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

Yeah, that to Arky.

They all die back to the ground here in the winter and after years of resprouting they resemble a clump of lilacs with huge leaves.  :D :D

Can you identify this tree only by the leaves?
