Comments:This tough, fast-growing tree is more often found in the countryside than on the streets of our area. In some communities it was planted as a boulevard tree to replace disease-stricken American Elms. Identified easily by their pebbly or warty textured bark, Hackberries have a small, hard but nourishing fruit, which wildlife enjoy. Emperor and Hackberry Butterflies seek out Hackberry trees.
