How Embarassing

Well, I've learned something this morning.

The tree I've been taught was an Osage is, in fact, NOT an Osage. I don't yet know what it IS but I've been assured by the local forester and the folks at Ryerson Woods that there are NO Osage trees growing on the property.

This is a bit embarassing as I've written up this tree in the past and always believed it to be Osage.

So, tree identification is going to be put off for a day or so until I can first identify this particular species and then to get some pictures of known Osage trees.

Thanks for reading,
