Right now, I'm pretty amateur at identifying different types of trees and as it is Early Spring here in Northern Michigan, it is hard to identify tree types by their leaves, because there are none.. So I resort to identifying trees by their bark. From what I've seen - to me, this looks like some sort of Ash tree. I could be completely wrong. Can anyone confirm or differ this?

Thanks,


Aaron

If I had to guess, I’d say Mulberry.

We don’t have Hackberry or Mulberry here so my guess would have been Ash as well. Another way to identify trees is by the twig. The terminal bud is a great tool (color, size and even placement on the twig)

Good luck!

Not enough info to make a guess. Tree shape, branch structure, and as mentioned earlier terminal bud pics would be helpful.

Bark alone, especially one picture, is really an unreliable way to ID most trees since the same tree can have drastically different bark depending on position and age.

From the info available I could get onboard with hackberry.
