Surely it isn't a Maple, it's a ________
« on: November 05, 2018, 06:50:13 AM »
I have about a 3 acre woods where i built and it is literally 80-90% sugar maple and with all the leaves changing to their bright gold,  it it easy to find every other tree species with a quick scan. I have found two of these trees and can't figure out what they are, this one is about 20-24" dbh and another about 20 yds away is about 12" dbh. Not sure if it's relevant but both trees are on about a 15% slope (steep for NW Ohio) and within 50 yds of a creek.



 



 



 



 

Thanks in advance!

Interesting... I have no experience with any kind of hickory other than shagbark which I have several of in the woods. I'll do some more research with this new information.

Based on the Ohio DNR website, it looks like it could definitely be a bitternut hickory.

Clearly it is a hickory, you can make out the underlying foundation of the terrifying presence of apotracheal parenchyma in the photos.   ;D

I aint scart!   :o

On the Shagbark photo is the area where the pores are bigger where the bands of parenchyma are absent?  Trying to ensure I am looking at the right place, what the bands of parenchyma are,or in this case arent.

For those not too scared to look.

You can laugh with / at me, I have no idea what any of that means. I quoted WDH from another thread and put a comical twist on it hoping he would laugh and explain all of those big words for us non sesquipedalian types. (had to look that one up too) ;D

It's a running joke.

I had no idea what Danny meant, nor did Southside I dont believe.  However, Southside just smoothly used Dannys comments as if it were just natural/normal!

I like the humor.

Yes Sir, that is it exactly.  

One must be careful around parenchyma.  Keep your distance.

I've wondered if or how that structure relates, pecan hickory is lower in density, strength and shrinkage (by around 3% in each direction!) than the true hickories that are denser, stronger and shrink a whole lot more.
