Tree ID Georgia
« on: May 14, 2022, 04:18:34 PM »
 

 

 

 My brother-in-law dropped this off today. It blew over the other day in his neighbors yard. I do not have any leaves. Can you tell what it is from these pictures?
Iím assuming, that with the twist in it, itís gonna be hard to get anything to dry flat ?

I was wondering if it was some kind of an elm. But I donít know my trees very good at all. Itís something else I need to work on.

Cut end suggests Hackberry.

Perspicacity aside, it is red maple.  

As @barbender would say, Lynn, you are becoming quite sesquipedalian.

I'll be damned! :D that's actually a word, albeit not one I can pronounce. Honestly, I was really proud of myself to remember it long enough to google it. 
I did guess the tree OK though.

The bark does not scream hackberry but the cut end does. I don't recall ever seeing Red Maple that looks like that cut end and I've hauled a lot of Red Maple. Maybe take some pics of the sawn wood and see how it dries.

Old ye of little faith.......that is what red maple heartwood looks like here in the blazing hot South.  Bark is perfect too.  Hackberry bark down here looks nothing like that.

For the sake of discussion, I will try to get a bark photo of Red Maple and Hackberry from my area and, if possible, the cut end of Red Maple and Hackberry. I understand that Hackberry has that "warty" look but many trees bark gets rough as they age.

Hackberry is ring porous.  The end grain in the pic appears to me to be diffuse porous.  Red maple is diffuse porous.
