“This very local species was discovered in South Carolina by Alexander Garden (1728-91); he sent a specimen to Linnaeus, who named it in 1767. The common and scientific names both refer to the tough branches.” Some #TreeFacts about the Tough Bumelia (Bumelia tenax). #NonfictionNovember

“Sycamore pioneers on exposed upland sites such as old fields and strip mines. The wood is used for furniture parts, millwork, flooring, and specialty products such as butcher blocks, as well as pulpwood, particleboard, and fiberboard. A shade tree, Sycamore grows to a larger trunk diameter than any other native hardwood. The present champion‘s trunk is about 11‘ (3.4 m) in diameter . . .”

“Japanese Zelkova resembles its relatives, the elms, which have the doubly saw-toothed leaf edges and winged fruits. It has been suggested as a substitute for American Elm, as it is resistant to the Dutch Elm disease. Propagated by seeds, layers, and grafts, it grows rapidly. In Japan, the wood is an important timber and valued for making furniture, lacquerware, and trays; the plants are often used for bonsai.” #TreeFacts #NonfictionNovember

“One of the scarcest and most coveted native hardwoods, Black Walnut is used especially for furniture, gunstocks, and veneer. Individual trees fetch attractive prices and a few prized trees have even been stolen. Since colonial days and before, Black Walnut has provided edible nuts and a blackish dye made from the husks. Tomatoes and apples do not survive near mature trees.”

“Compound leaves are composed of 3 or more small leaflets. When the leaflets are arranged along a central stalk, the leaf is pinnately compound, as in hickories, pecans, sumacs, and ashes. When the central stalk has side branches, the leaf is bipinnately compound; examples include acacias, Kentucky Coffeetree, and Devils-walkingstick.”
