Any tree guys out there?

I walk up to the gate every morning to get the newspapers and always stop to look at this guy. It's grown to about 7 feet tall in the last four years. I just love the way the bark spreads out, reminds me of a cobra. I've looked in all of Sandar the mag's extensive gardening and tree books without success.

Anyone know what this is?



The leaves look like a Cedar Elm. It's a tall tree that loses it's leaves in the winter. Starting to turn as we speak.

Wink Tree guy

I can give you an estimate of what that is Grif.

You want the answer in cords or board feet?

If you need any help processing it, I'm your man.

Good grief, Charlie! You're not one of them guys that I've seen pictures of splitting wood in 8 feet of snow in a t-shirt..... are you?

We heat our house with an earth stove, but I don't have a pile like that.

Cedar Elm ....... I put 20 down the driveway but they were real trees.

It may be just trash growing, let it grow a little more and trim it up a little.
