latshaj The white ash (Fraxinus amaricana) is in the oleaceae or olive family. This tree is located on upland sites where soils drain easily. They make very attractive street trees and also are the preferred wood for baseball bats. These large plants an be distinguished from green ash by the large leaf scar that straddles the base of the bud. White ash are susceptible to girdling from the emerald ash borer an introduced pest to North America. #fraxinus #oleaceae #newjersey #highlandpark #whiteash #temperate #temperateforestspecies #deciduous #winter #winterbotany #dendrology #explore #exploreyourworld #adventure #fun #botany #botanizing #getoutside #treeid #bark #leafscar #holidaybotany #holidayseason #homefortheholidays #specimen 20h

latshaj Sassafras (Sassafras albidum) is my absolute favorite north eastern tree. Sassafras belongs to the Lauraceae family which is a ancient plant family. They are very easy to find in winter or summer. In the summer the trees have very characteristic polymorphic leaves with either no lobes, two lobes, or three lobes. During winter it's reddish bark and swollen leaf buds are its giveaway. The twigs of this species are highly aromatic smelling almost like sour apple. Roots of this species were used in commercial tea and root beers, but after it was discovered to be carcinogenic sassafras was discontinued as an ingredient. #sassafras #Lauraceae #holidaybotany #botany #botanizing #holidayseason #homefortheholidays #buds #green #winter #woodland #winterbotany #fun #temperate #temperateforestspecies #deciduous #dendrology #pennsylvania #explore #easternforest #exploreyourworld #adventure #getoutside #spiritplant #aromatic 3d

latshaj Eastern white pine (Pinus strobus) is a five needle pine that was almost decimated from eastern forests. The culprit responsible is white pine blister rust, but through selective breeding resistant trees have recolonized the forests of eastern North America. White pines are a valuable timber species that were once prized for building ship masts because of their height and extremely straight growth habit. #winterbotany #winter #snow #botany #botanizing #holidaybotany #holidayseason #christmasbotany #homefortheholidays #easternforest #deciduous #dendrology #temperateforestspecies #temperate #pinus #pinaceae #fiveneedlepine #needles #pinetree #mixedpineforest #explore #getoutside #exploreyourworld #adventure #pennsylvania #nature #naturalhistory #nativeplants #easternnative 5d

latshaj Staghorn sumac (Rhus typhina) drupes laden with fresh snow. Leafless branches terminate with scarlet Infructescences. These little fuzzy fruits can make an acidic drink similar to pink lemonade (always know your plants before consumption). Sumac is in the highly toxic cashew family along with poison ivy and mango. The Hawaiian sumac is an even closer relative. Winter botany is so much fun! ‪ 6d
