    I need to identify what kind of tree this is. I have an idea of what it is, but I need to obtain opinions to know for sure. I have 2 pictures of the Overall tree shape, 2 pictures of the bark, and 2 pictures of the buds. Pleas view all pictures prior to posting your thoughts. I know its winter and there are no leaves on it, which makes it harder to ID. Thanks.

    I am sorry..Shagbark Hickory is what I am getting from my book that's what it looks like to me
    No such thing as a Shagbark Maple

    All Ferris, Thanks for the reply. It is a hazard tree, so it may come down anyway. :laugh:

    Sheshovel, yeah I need leaves too to ID many trees. Buds and bark alone is hard to do. Thanks for the reply.

    I am clueless without leaves. :confused: What species do you think it is MJL? Can you let me know, once you find out for sure? I am really curious.
    Thanks.:)

    Well the buds do look like one but the bark does not.
