    The last three pics would be the sweetgum tree. It’s the first one I’ve seen growing at my place. The first three pics are of trees that are growing all over the place. It seems to be a softer wood or at least its soft being a small tree.

    That’s awesome. I always mow them down and they keep coming back. I’ll leave some to grow now. Thanks

    Take a walk around the field's treeline. Almost whatever sprouting in the field came from nearby trees. Persimmon trees easy to identify in the fall. Fruit is tasty after a frost but you don't want to eat one not ready. Learned that from experience.

    It’s a lot of fun watching someone bite into a green persimmon.

    I haven’t noticed persimmon trees but that doesn’t mean much. It is fun to watch. I used to trick my cousin into trying them early. It was mean but he kept falling for it. I did find a honey locust but I only found one. You’d think there would be more. Would it be hard to transplant some of the persimmon trees? One of my hunting spots doesn’t have any persimmon and I know deer love them.
