    Carpinus koreana - Carpinus turczaninowii

    I have seen multiple websites claim theyre the same, and Ive seen multiple websites claim theyre different and also sell them separately. What gives? Also believe Ive seen it spelled "coreana". Need expert advice.

    Duckfeet Trident?

    This does not look like the tridents I had (I killed them...). The leaves on mine were kinda boring maple like in shape, dunno how to describe it. Anyone know if this is a named cultivar, or have any other trident maple cultivar recommendations?

    Super small leaves JM?

    Look at what I found in a planter. Those are centimeters, not inches. Anyone guess the cultivar name? Cause I have no idea. The plant was about 1.4 meters tall, with very low graft union if any. Trunk was maybe 7cm diameter, from memory.

    Tree ID please. Google isn’t helping.

    It’s in my yard and spreads easily. Looks 100 yrs old in less than 20. I thought it was a wild plum but now I’m thinking crabapple maybe. Let me know what you think! I’m in southwest FL for reference on location. Either way if it has decent roots I’m tempted to collect at least one. I have several.

    Collected Redberry Juniper (Juniperus pinchotii)

    I collected another juniper today that I believed was and Ashe juniper but on closer inspection I believe it is a redberry juniper. The foliage looks a bit different and the bark is definitely not as dark as Ashe juniper. If anyone can verify ID I would appreciate it! Either way it’s a great...

    Identifying a pine

    Hi all, I bought a pine from a local nursery, however the label said just 'pine'. Anyone got an idea what kind of pine this is exactly. It's a two needle pine. Maybe the visible cone can provide the necessary info? And while we at it; any ideas for a design?
