Exclamation Safe Tree Project: Need YOUR Help!

Hello everyone!

I was wanting to make this a sticky here, but I need the members' help with this one! This thread is to submit the photos needed and once we have enough photos we will make a new sticky using the photos.

Many members lately have been wanting to identify trees for safe perches, so I had the idea to make a photo thread showing safe trees and tips on identifying them, but I cannot get every tree. I would like your help to get photos of bird safe trees and help put together this sticky for the members here to use.


What do we need?

-Clear photos of the following:
--Leaves (Close-up of single leaf)
--Bark
--Full tree, different seasons would be ideal
--Any other key features

-General location you took the photo of (example: state/province, country--Southwestern Ontario, Canada as an example).

-A brief write up of key distinguishing features (what shape are the leaves, colour and pattern of the bark, description of tree... what helps you identify this tree?)


All photos submitted will have a Photo Courtesy of: (Your name/username here)



Thanks guys! Even after we get enough photos to make a start of the sticky, we will still accept photos, but you must enter them HERE in this thread! Please clear photos only!

Let's work together to put this thread together for each other! It might take awhile, but we can do it! Soon up here in the Northern Hemisphere leaves will be coming back to the trees, so I should see lots of photos of leaves

I have some to add:


AREA: Southwestern Ontario, Canada

Sycamore:





Distinguishing Features: Bark is smooth, hard and patterned like camouflage! Leaves look like maple leaves! Has round ball like pods that fall apart easily if thrown.

Cottonwood:





Distinguishing Features: Leaves are spade shaped and glossy! Twigs are kind of knobbly and spindly for the tree's size. Bark is often thick and chunky, light grey-brown colour. Twigs often have spine like buds.


Birch:








Distinguishing Features: Bark is white with black marks. Leaves are small and spade shaped. Bark often peels on larger paper birch trees.

Willow:

Goat Willow


Weeping Willow







Distinguishing Features: Weeping willow has vine like branches that trail down like curtains, often grows near water. Curly willow has curly curvy branches and twigs. Goat willow has furry little silver buds, very soft to the touch--like velvet.



Silver Maple:














Distinguishing Features: Leaves two-toned (bottom of leaf is pale, often turns up in storms and winds, giving the tree its name). Leaves are skinny lobed with 5 main points. Turn red and yellow in fall. Trees are often tall and sturdy. Buds are red in spring. Bark is light grey-brown with flat slats of bark.

I'm planning to contribute to it as well, just waiting for the trees to leaf out. Spring came late to Minnesota. Just had another snowfall last night

all maple but RED MAPLE are safe, so know your maples


i will have more trees next week, after i come back from vacation i will have more time to post the new photos i have


even if the trees are already listed here, more photos are always welcome the more variety the better.

and trees from around the world is perfect.

please, submit them as photobucket links, not attachments though. this thread is just a submission thread, the final product will be a sticky of its own with just the tree photos

YES! some people don't know what it looks like, and having photos of it would help people identify it. any bird safe tree, even if its common knowledge would be awesome!!

Here are some trees on my property that are safe and found through out North America.

American Elm. A "messy" tree once very popular along most of main streets in the US. Dutch elm disease almost killed them all about a century a go. The bark is grayish brown and the leaves are large, oval shapes with serrated edges. In good conditions they produce seed pods which wild birds really enjoy.







The is a non-bearing Mulberry. You can also use fruit bearing Mulberry trees. These trees tend to have a very large, stout trunk with sizable branches. The leaves are oval.







There are more trees around here I just need to get some pics. My battery on the camera died.
