Image of organism
Permanent unique identifier for this particular organism:


This large sugarberry on the south side of the Community Partnership House is typical of the large hackberries in the arboretum. It has a very large diameter of 131 cm, exceeded only by some of the largest oaks and magnolias.

This tree helps illustrate the variability seen in the bark of hackberries. It's bark is much knobbier than the bark of its partner on the other side of the building, and the bark on the lower trunk of this tree is so rough that it is almost not recognizable as a hackberry.
