They are not too popular in my neck of the woods.

I'm getting ready to mill a couple of them.
They make great paneling, I just wish they would stay the color they start out as when you mill them.

They do not seem to thrive here.  I do not know if it is the climate or the sandy soil.

The tree for today is coming to you a little late - I've been grilling pork, chicken, rib trimmings, potatoes and beans all day. 



 

 

 

 Even though it has the corky growth, it is not juvenile sweetgum. It does have a lotta them.

Winged Elm (Ulmus alata).  They get a little more challenging to i.d. when they do not have wings but the buds are not as big as American Elm's and the leaf petioles are shorter.  The leaves are also usually a little narrower from margin to margin compared to an American Elm of the same length.

They are usually more scabrous than american elm which is normally smooth.

br> This tree of the day may be a little more challenging for some than yesterday's winged elm. It is compound, alternate and usually has 9-13 leaflets.

Water Hickory or Carya aquatica.  I did not think that one would bedevil you, WDH.

I found the Georgia State Champion one back about 7 years ago.  Has scaly bark like pecan with many leaflets with a flattened nut.

How big was your champion?  I have seen a few around here but none that I have found are very big.

 Sunday's tree of the day.  Many will find it familiar.  There is a variety used in landscape called Little Gem.
