    I have this tree in my yard.I have asked people what kind of tree it is and no one has a clue.I'm sure when the leaves come on it would be an easier question to answer..Just thought I'd ask. The bark is real deep like?..Ziggy

    It's a Prop Tree. Used in scary "B" movies.

    Don't know, Ziggy, but I'd stay away from it just in case it's one of those man eating trees. Can't be to careful you know.

    If it has long (mostly three branched) thorns, it is likely a Honeylocust. The one behind looks to be a White pine. Jon Sharp

    Sweetgum?

    See page 4 of the website for details of the bark on the branches.

    The bark looks a lot like the two sweetgums I have here.

    Jon Sharp - With your background I would have thought you could identify the tree with only a glance.

    You could always call an arbortariumistic expert in the area and ask them to come out and look at the tree and while they are there they could also cure it of evil spirits ... ya know the last time I saw a tree like that the local Gnome population used to have a deep cavern hollowed out underneath it and they used it for there Gnomatic Worship and ... well ... it was an evil scraggly tree that when it was cut down made an evil hiss and demons oozed from its stump.

    Ya know maybe it is best just to not know what it really is.

    Does it have a trunk? All I see is limbs. Take another picture from further back, that might help.

    If you took a picture of the tree with or without leaves, it is identifiable almost all the time. If this isn't a joke (and it does look like one) I would say that the limbs look as if they might be from a Black Locust, but the bark isn't exactly right and that is why a picture of the entire tree is necessary to be sure.

    It looks similar to a pin oak I have in my front yard (IA). The limbs toward the ends have this fissured texture.

    OK, here is the whole tree. I will also take pics when the leaves grow. A nieghbor said that when I find out the kind of tree it is,I should put a bronze plack in front of it...Ziggy

    I'm tending to side with butch's90T. Maybe a local variation of such. Where in what is the tree located. Any dead leaves around the base? Maybe under the pine tree?

    Those leaves look like they grew on a sweetgum tree once upon a time. Break 'em all! Tom Ruble
