A tree with gray furrowed bark;
a nut favored by humans and wildlife,
is found inside a round husk that stains ones hand.
Note the stout twigs.
This is a scrappy tree, sometimes called an ash-leaved maple.
But what other common name does it go by?
Okay, so here is the tree list in order of their photos: black walnut, boxelder, catalpa, and butternut.
