Panzner wetland 15 acres. "Plants of Pennsylvania" keys it to hamiltonianis (because of leaves over 8 cm) but that doesn't match photos and distributions I see at inat and elsewhere.
Perhaps a dozen 3m trees.
Really stood out from native rubus and dogwoods because of prominent leaves and fruits. Wooded area with scattered red maple and cherry and cottonwood and quaking aspen.
Golden-threaded cordyceps. At first glance it resembles an earth tongue, but digging down into the soil shows its true nature: like other cordyceps, this one is parasitic. Rather than attacking insects, it infects underground puffballs
The tree was huge, I had to stand back to try to take the picture and I still couldn't get the full tree. The bark was dark and rough with acorns all on the ground, the leaves haven't changed colors yet
This tree was found next to a house in Medina County. I estimate its height to be 15-20 feet high. It seems to be an older tree because it looks like the tree has grown to its biggest height and the bark is peeling also. The leaf how different size teeth and is simple. The tree is Y shaped at the base of the tree and is found in a garden surrounded by mulch.
This tree was found in my back yard in Medina County. I estimate its height to be 30-40 feet high. It seems to be an older tree because the bark seems faded and peeling. The leaf is simple with very small teeth. The leaf has a very round margin all the way around and has a slight point on the top. The tree is surrounded by dirt at the bottom. The tree has a small hint of purple.
This tree was found along side a creek in Medina County. I estimate its height to be 40 feet high. It seems to look like a newer tree because there were new branches being made and growing and there weren't a lot of cracks in the bark.
The leaf is simple and has small teeth. The leaf is very narrow and feather like. The tree was located next to a creek which was densly populated with many other types of trees and other things.
