(European Hornbeam)

A stately tree with muscular gray branches and trunk, the European hornbeam has glossy green foliage and produces interesting strings of lobed, yellow-brown fruits in fall. This tall, oval-canopied deciduous tree is native to much of Europe and eastward into Asia Minor.

The leaves are oval and have unequal but doubled rows of teeth on their edges. Veins are very depressed and the upper leaf side is a dull, deep green and undersides a lighter shiny green. These leaves are held late into fall and...

(American Hornbeam, Musclewood)

A slow-growing, spreading-canopied deciduous tree, American hornbeam is native to southeastern North America from Canada to Mexico. The ridged, gray, smooth bark looks like there are flexed muscles under it, yielding another common name of musclewood. It may also grow with many trunks and attain a form much more shrub-like, albeit large.

The pretty, oblong, tapered leaves have depressed veins and double-teeth on their edges. In spring, male and female flowers appear separately on the same tree,...

(Carya)

The genus Carya comprises approximately 18 to 22 species of hickories and pecans (experts disagree about the status of some species). Most are large deciduous trees; a few are shrubs. Their areas of origin include Mexico, eastern Asia and the eastern half of North America. They are prized as long-lived, slow growing specimen trees. All have hard, elastic wood that is valuable for furniture making, wood flooring and tool handles, and slow burning hickory wood adds a pleasing flavor to smoked...

(Bitternut Hickory, Pignut Hickory, Swamp Hickory)

One of the best hickories for ornamental use, bitternut is a tall deciduous tree from eastern North America. Its straight trunk and strong spreading branches form an oval or cylindrical crown. The gray bark is rough and flaky at its surface, lacking the deep fissuring and plate-like scales typical of other hickories. The compound leaves are divided into 7 to 9 lance-shaped leaflets, with one leaflet at the tip and the others paired. They emerge from yellow buds somewhat later than the leaves of most...

(Pignut Hickory)

A valuable wildlife and timber plant, pignut is a highly variable medium to large deciduous tree from eastern North America. Its tapering, sometimes forked trunk bears relatively short, spreading or drooping branches, forming a narrowly oval crown. The gray bark can be smooth, furrowed, or scaly. The pinnate leaves are divided into five or rarely seven lance-shaped yellow-green leaflets, with one leaflet at the tip and the others paired. The foliage turns yellow in fall. Inconspicuous flowers appear...
