In my imagination, I thought perhaps there were similar trees in that same area for you to look at.  In fact, you spoke of branches in your earlier posts.

Another Amelanchier species is in bud-swell stage here in East-Central WI-apple serviceberry.  But up at my farm-60 miles north-no such sightings.  Not much up around there anyway, I don't think.

I might just not be familiar with Amelanchier arborea.  They might be around here...and of similar size....but just something I've missed.

Lou, I was referring to the fruit, not the wood.  The wood is real hard and slow growing. Many grow in a lot of shade cover, and then manage to find a hole in the canopy to flower when the opportunity arrives.

Just noticing the beaked hazel today. Mostly overlooked, the female flowers are red and very simple. And very small. :)



Cold here, water was froze in the ditch until noon at work. They've been predicting 50's and never happened yet this week. :D
Move'n on.

Seems like these two points are a match.  Can't wait for some growth to start poppin' out.

The serviceberry trees in my woods are in full bloom now and can be seen easily when viewing the hill sides. My woods is located in the south west corner of Allegany County NY. Pretty hard to miss them.

Great, thanks.  The trees in question here are just pushing some leaves through, I can see a bit of red popping out.  Hopefully some close-up pics within a week.  I'm in Otsego County near Oneonta.

Here is a close-up of the leaves.  Very windy right now, and about 16' high, so best I can get for now.  No flowers yet.

Timing is about the same. If none now, or about to open, won't see any this year. Was the tree getting good light? By the looks of the twigs shown it's shaded a bit.
Move'n on.

I think I know what it is!

1. The first one to blossom in the spring!
2. It gets berries on it that resemble Blueberries!
3. Doesn't get very large, usually no more than 6-8 inches diameter!
4. The wood is very dense, and heavier than any other in the area!
5. Doesn't lose much weight as it dries!
6. Looks like Shad to me, some call it Shadberry!

Nope, the largest I've ever seen was maybe 7-8 inches!

The "soft" in soft fruit trees refers to the fruit not the wood. Soft fruit (apple, pear,berries, etc.) as opposed to nuts (walnut, beech, pecan,etc).

Thanks all.  I assume the heavy winds up here might have blown away the blossoms?  This pic comes from the field edge, and nothing in the way of it getting sun.  I do find it strange that at my age, I have never seen the fruit on any of these trees.  Could be I just never looked up (but none fall to the ground?).

Your not alone in not seeing the fruit. I doubt by grandfather or my uncle ever gave much notice to them and they were in the woods a lot. In fact I'm sure my uncle just called them cherries if he did see a blossom. ;)

Most of the time a shrub like striped maple is seen in the woods about 2-4" in diameter.

In old hemlock stands I've seen them grow 10" easily. I tried cutting one that was rather large with a brush saw and had to break it off after I  had the blade around it 360 degrees. :D If it were a tree maple you couldn't break it off the stump that easy. Striped maple is brittle wood in comparison. I wanted to bring it home, but I was thinning on someone else's land for him so it wasn't mine to bring home and I never asked to. So she's still laying on the ground making soil. ;)
Move'n on.

It doesn't take very long for several varieties of birds to notice the fruit.  It won't be visible very long before they have the tree plucked clean!
