Hackberry

Celtis occidentalis, probably

One of the Elm family. Note the similar asymmetrical leaf form. Bark is distinctive even when young. Pith at leaf junctions has horizontal partitions. Seeds are solitary, may stay on tree all winter and turn blackish with age. These trees were planted in reforestation near the Cedars on County Rd.12. The leaf shape varies markedly with that shown by Farrar in Trees in Canada but most other details comply with his.
