    That second yellow birch was the only one I missed with first answer. I sure would like a closer look at it though because I have my doubts as well, at least from that view!

    Got them all right the first time except for the hemlock in the bottom row . . . if only I saw the needles! ;) Surprised myself since I tend to ID trees more by leaf/needle structure.

    I missed the same tree. Yellow Birch is highly variable, but that one is unusual even for a tree with a lot of unusual specimens. I also missed the Hemlock. I guess I never spent a lot of time looking closely at Hemlock bark; there is no need to use the bark for identification.

    The wood lot I have been cutting at , the trees were cut down 2 years ago , so I have been researching bark ID ,cuz that's all I have to go by, except end grain when I cut.
    When I go back I will take the x25 so I can split some to help, if I can't ID them

    That one birch in the quiz ,IDK ,may be an error :)

    Got all of the deciduous trees on the first try. I didn't do well with the pine species. I must be a wood snob.

    One wrong first time through. That was interesting. I often go by the odor so this was good for me.
    Good review. Now, how many can find north by looking at tree trucks?

    No oak or locust?
    Got them all right on the second
    row. Terrible on the pine family.

    Yeah that was a piece of cake....click on each pic to see it enlarged and the species appears in the url address....
    Before I noticed that, I was running 50% correct

    No problems with those I've seen growing. Guessed on the striped maple. Missed the second yellow birch...guessed, but guessed wrong.

    Yeah - striped maple threw me a curve. Never seen it before - it looked to me like sassafras when it's young but that wasn't an option
