AAGH! TOO CLOSE! My eyes are burning!

Could you back up and take a photo of the entire tree or at least some branches? Thank you!

I'm certain that's a Hickory (Carya sp.).

I agree that you should show the WHOLE plant first, then progressively detailed images. Always show how the leaves are attached to the stem/branch, which will always help separate similar species.

Hickory will have alternate arrangement of pinnate compound leaves; Ash will have opposite arrangement of pinnate compound leaves.

I have no advice for burning eyes - other than it means lots of tree pollen aggravating me here in the Ohio River valley...

They sure look like leaves of Carya sp. to me too and there are apparently quite a few Carya that grow in Illinois, as listed on this page: http://m.extension.illinois.ed...

For comparison: Shagbark Hickory (Carya ovata)
