I have a tree in my yard and have been wondering what kind of tree it is for a long time. I have looked in all the tree books in my local library and everywhere on the internet. But i can not find a match for the tree anywhere.
The tree is a hardwood tree that is grayish white and has giraffe like spots towards the top and flakey light brown bark towards the bottom. The closest bark that looks like my tree is the japanese stewartia. The bark is almost identical but my tree has different color bark. If anyone has any kind of imformation or clue to what kind of tree is, please reply or e-mail me. Thanks
I have attatched a picture i took in the winter when there weren't any leaves on the tree
