Tree Identification

Not sure where to post a question like this, but figured I could find an answer here.
Ive been trying to search the web for an answer, but havent found it yet.

There are a bunch of these kinds of trees in a wetland area close to my house. They have lots of berries and have kept them all winter. Im assuming wildlife doesnt eat them.

Re: Tree Identification

Interesting. Hope you get an answer. I have never seen them. They look like grapes but we all know grapes don't grow on trees. Any wildlife in the area?

You canít get them if you ainít in the woods!!

Re: Tree Identification

It looks like Chionanthus virginicus (White Fringetree) to me?

Re: Tree Identification

There was a rabbit hopping around when I took the picture. This place is right along a main road so I've never hunted it. I've seen them other places but this area seems to have a lot of them.
Ill have to dissect the fruit and see what I find.
Thanks

I don't know, the fruit of the white fringe tree is the same color but seems smaller and not nearly as largely bunched as the fruit in the pictures above.

Re: Tree Identification

I believe that it is a serviceberry. I think there are a couple of varieties and wild plum is one of them.

Go back in a few weeks and you'll be able to ID it better when there are leaves and possibly flowers. That is if spring ever comes.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.
