A nice Hawthorn

Post by Steve Galehouse » Fri Sep 30, 2011 5:45 pm

NTS-

I measured a nicely shaped and fairly large hawthorn yesterday; 30.6' tall, 5'4'' girth at 4'(below major limb split), 42' average crown spread. Not sure of the species, looked sort of like dotted hawthorn but the fruit wasn't quite right. A couple of photos:

Notice the partially defoliated large tree in the background of the second photo---this is an ash with EAB. It looks like all the ash in the area will be dead soon.

Steve,

Whereabouts in Ohio was the hawthorn found?
