Description

This tree was very difficult to identify. It has a VERY large trunk, about 4 feet across. It was also very tall, at least 3-4 stories tall. The leaves were very hard to see since they only sprouted at the top of the tree. I tried to magnify with my camera, but got some very blurry leaves. At the top, there was strange orange coloration on the bark. I tried to capture it in one of the photos. Amazing tree!

Probably our native black cottonwood. The outline of the leaves against the sky is a good indication.
