hickory

Description:

I came across this tree that a beaver had felled and this was growing out of the trunk. It's very strange looking and I was hoping for an identification.

Habitat:

Woodlands near a pond, yet next to a road



No species ID suggestions

I'll have to wait on all those as beavers chewed all five trees to the ground in the past. Just moved to this property and so many wonderful discoveries await me.

You're welcome ChadWhitlock. It may or may not be pignut, all hickories have these pink buds. If you can get photos of the bark, mature leaves or the nuts, you can make a positive ID.

This is hickory, probably the same as your other spotting. Hickory has pink bud scales. http://marniehutcheson.wordpress.com/201...
