I love trees and I have an old book on trees that I read now - it is very detailed in text but not as much with photos and it's only black and white. So I am trying to learn all the complex terminology. But I have yet to find these two trees in the book.

Could one be a beech? And notice the interesting pods on the other - the pods are really cool to look at.

Thanks for any help at all.

PS The tree with the oval/pointed leaves - I need to give you a much better pic - something happened to the nice pic I had.
Sorry.

I forgot to mention that I too thought it was some kind of
locust. But the big question will be - which kind of
locust? Black or Honey or some other tree like that such
as a Carob tree. So I have to taste the seeds and see if
they are toxic. If they are not, it might be a Honey locust, if so, it might be a Black Locust.

For the other tree, the leaves are too high - I need to get a ladder to get a nice pic or use zoom somehow.

Thank you.

I am now using a tree identification site but here is a close-up of the tree that is NOT a locust.

This might help id it.

By the way, the online tree identification site does not work.

The leaves on a branch are not always either opposite or alternating but sometimes a combination of both.

So far I am up to that the leaves have an "entire" margin. We'll see how it goes.

Sorry, let me qualify "does not work". I should say
that in this case, I (personally) am not having much
success. I will keep trying. I'm sure it works if
someone more knowledgable uses it.

Looks like Ailanthus.


I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!
