Need help Indentifing tree
« on: June 14, 2019, 09:30:49 PM »
We have a nice specimen on our property and just can't find out what it is. Very tall at about 50-75'. Broad leaf with 1-3 points. Late foliage, just came in within the last month or so. Bean like sprouts. My Audubon guide puts it closely to a Northern Catalpa but we've never had flowers like the ones pictured in the book. Diameter at the base is about 20".


Why do I do it...ĒAll for the Love of CedarĒ

I would say catalpa is right.  Not sure which one.  Maybe it doesnít flower that far north.  Iíve noticed a lot of catalpa around here in the last few years.  I was just pointing them out to my wife today.  They are not listed as being native to this part of Missouri.
