Hi, all: While on a walk through a nature preserve in southern Illinois, we came across this very unusual looking tree. It’s just leafing out, and I intend to go back in a few weeks to try to get a leaf photo, but this is all I currently have. It has these weird, curving “branches”, and the leaves are emerging from what we’ve been describing as a “turban” for lack of a better term. Any ideas?

    Maybe one of the species of hickory genus ( Carya) (?). If this is hickory, sorry I can’t tell which one this is. Check out the hickory section on this included link for more information. Best wishes!
