|Pre-Purchase, I'm trying to Identify a Tree Species form the following data;|
A)Evergreen with dense folage,
B)Smooth White Bark,
C)Fairly Fast Grower,
D)Elongated Leaves-similar to a Privet,
E)25' or More in height at maturity.
No Local Nurseryman have been able to identify, even-though
they do grow locally.
|Without actually seeing the tree, I'm only venturing an educated guess - I think it's holly oak (Quercus ilex). This is an evergreen tree with a dense, rounded canopy; leaves are usually oval to lance shaped, 1-3" long; bark is smooth and white when young, changing to a gray-white with maturity.|
If this description doesn't fit the tree, try taking a sample of the foliage and a snapshot of the tree to your local Cooperative Extension office. Folks there are familiar with your local flora and can probably identify it for you. (Phone 805-781-4316)
