This tree has a leaf that looks a little bit like a Beech leaf, but the margins are without teeth. The leaf is a little wider towards the end. The trunk is a lighter color with rough, deeply furrowed vertical bark.

Thanks for your help!

    I have this same tree in my front yard and have been unable to identify it. If you find out what it is please e mail me. Thank you.

    Someone commented to me that it’s a Black Tupelo. I looked it up in a couple of my tree I.D. books and have come to agree.

    Thanks, my dad thought it might be a black gum.
