I should know what that is too but the bark is really throwing me off. Sure hope someone knows. Where is Viburnum Valley when you need him?

At 1:09 a.m., I was fast asleep under 3 cats. This morning, we're manning the booth at Lexington Farmers Market.

The first photo is a nice clump of pinnate compound leaves. Arrangement isn't immediately evident because you don't show attachment to stem.

Second photo is a great shot of young bark on this species - along with a lot of Boxelder Maple (Acer negundo) compound foliage with opposite arrangement, which does NOT belong to the species in question.

That's a young Black Walnut - Juglans nigra. Pinch off some leaflets and crush - the scent is unmistakeable and memorable.

Bark is smooth on my walnuts that size. Threw me off. Shrug!

Thank you very much.
I should have put in the post about the boxelder maples, probably threw some people off.

Now I have to figure out what to do with these trees, they cannot stay there.

The black walnut has a really bad crook in the trunk near the base.
I may end up air layering it into a couple trees.

"I may end up air layering it into a couple of trees."
I would sure like to know your results on that. Keep us posted on it?
As far as the Box Elders I consider them trash. Very weak wood. As they get older limbs die and fall off and they end up looking like...well, you know. YMMV. I have more than I want in my little woods. Though I will keep one somewhere just for the sake of diversity.
