Eastern Hornbeam

Post by pattyjenkins1 » Sun Aug 30, 2020 9:48 am

Two shots of the beautiful! trunk of a healthy 18" DBH Eastern hornbeam (Ostrya virginiana) inspected yesterday by my husband Peter, an ISA-certified arborist. Submitted to Eli Dickerson for Atlanta City champion measurement if appropriate. (I don't know why the images are showing up sideways in the post, but if you click them, they right themselves.)

Patti, good to hear from you.

A may be all wet, but that looks more like Carpinus caroliniana or muscle wood as it is often called. At least, here in New England, I think it would be so identified.

How are you all doing during COVID-19?
