When people post IDs they always have pics of the leaves/foliage etc, but I think many of us treeworkers can id trees from far away just by their shape.

Can anyone id what tree I'm climbing in this pic?

Correct B'Bull, Some people call them Tulip Poplars, I dont know anyone that calls them cottonwoods, jim454 did, I think he means Tulip Poplar? - must be area specific, the further south you go the more people call them cottonwoods? these Tulips were located in North Virginia, right next to DC. There's thousands of them around that area, big too. These ones were about 140ft, we were deadwooding them. And fwiw it is me.

Ok, time for a new one, what tree am I climbing in this pic?

This is actually very difficult, I'd be amazed if anyone got it.

Clue - not a Tulip Poplar. But those are two Tulips on the left.

He means "end this thread".

See, computer geeks speak (or rather type) computer code. Forward slash means "end".
MB can't stand Grover's smart @ss, so he has to show his disdain for him by posting in this thread, while simutaneously calling for this thread to end.

It's really a lovely to watch.

I'll say the second picture is an Oak...maybe. The resolution is crappy, and you probably meant it to be that way.



Oh what the heck, I'm tired of playing your dumb old game too!


It's so July 2nd.

Ulmus americana? Not sure...............

Correct B'Bull. Those trees were all that was left of a woodland which was felled for those houses.....they started to show signs of dieback soon after the houses were built. All removed. No trees now.

Next tree coming soon....
