It looks like white ash bark, the sprouts between the trees looks like opposite leafing which white ash has. However I am not sure.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Help with tree bark ID.

I'm trying to identify elms. Having trouble telling ash from elm (bark wise). Finally getting warm up here and the apple trees are starting to blossom. I know how to tell live elm from ash but dead or busted up (no leaves and little branches) is hard for me just by the bark.

If you look up elm bark online you just find pictures of everything from cherry, to alm/ash, oak... anything. By the way this picture marks a milestone for me. I've joined the rest in 2014 and this is my first photo uploaded from my new smart phone without my wifes help. Who would have thought this day would have come to be.

Re: Help with tree bark ID.

dave3,

How do you identify the dead trees in the back as elm?
Just looking for pointers here.

Thanks

Re: Help with tree bark ID.

I am saying elm for the following: the wood has small nubs like growths and the bark is falling off in "sheets".
