Can anyone help me ID this tree? It is growing in fairly dry soil on top of a ridge. Thanks.
Does not look like hickory to me:
But I am not sure what it is.
Would hickory leaves all grow out of one spot? All other hickory trees we have, the leaves are along a stem. Also, cutting the tree down, it does not seem quite as hard as hickory or oak. I have a tree ID brochure for TN and there is nothing in it that matches ....
Not sure, but have a lot of them here in Central Tn.
ok not hickory. maybe blck gum
Maybe a black gum tree???
Maybe a pawpaw tree.
Scroll down to the leaves photo:
Thanks, everyone. I have been busy. I don't think it is the pawpaw tree but I think it is possible it is the black gum tree. I will look at some pictures when I have a moment.
Looks very similar to the leaves on my magnolia tree.
Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. After further "investigation", I believe it is black gum tree. It appears that when the leaves are relatively new they grow all bunched up together. But other branches of the tree have them spaced out in alternating pattern. I had to look at other branches to make positive id as the leaves growing together threw me for a loop. Thanks, everyone!
