Thanks Lee Anne. It's the one with the red berries which are throwing me off. Lee

Adm has informed me I have posted too many at one time. Do you know of a way to delete them. That might satisfy and calm all. Lee

I think the one with the berries is Spicebush (Lindera benzoin)

Butternut or possibly hickory on the ones without berries. My money's on butternut.

I also think the first mystery plant could be Elderberry. The one with the berries looks like Carolina Buckthorn...small tree, usually 8 to 12 feet.

If he took the pictures recently, they should have fruit or at least blooms on them if they are elderberry. Or maybe they don't fruit if they are in the woods in shade????

Elderberry trees don't always make berries. I've looked into this, because I have one that doesn't. First, they prefer a pH of 5.5 to 6.5...but they're supposed to be adaptable to some areas with higher pH (fairly high pH around here). Then there's cross-pollination, which I think is what's wrong with mine. There should be two different cultivars within 60 feet for adequate pollination. I've moved suckering plants from mine out by the dry creek on the corner of the property, but that doesn't count...they are clones of mine. As far as I know, there aren't any other elderberry trees anywhere locally.I really need another kind of elderberry!

Linda, now that you mention it, i have one that doesn't fruit also. It is surrounded by ones that have plenty of fruit. We have a winery in our area that makes elderberry wine and they sell several types of elderberry bushes. Here's a link to them in case you want to order any plants:
