I need to identify a exfoliating tree in growing in western Connecticut with small firm fruits. It is not a tree normally found in this area.

It is a tree about 15 ft high and about 20 feet wide, brown and white bark marked from the exfoliation. Where do I send pictures?

UCONN has a very robust extension service with excellent resources for gardeners, including a really great 

woody plant database. Have you contacted anyone there? Suggest you send your photo to their email

For best results, follow these guidelines:

 (this information is adapted from instructions found on the University of Maryland Extension service web site)

  • Growing conditions (full sun, part shade, shade, windy, salt spray, etc.)

Photos (jpg file less than 1MB and in focus)

  • Tree and shrub photos should include a 12-24” branch with leaves, flowers, fruit or seed pods  as well as a photo of entire plant, if possible.
  • Flowers, weeds, and other herbaceous plant photos should show entire plant, preferably with flowers or seed heads.
  • Descriptions should include size and source (if known) of plant; color, aroma, and time of flowering; fruit, cone, etc.
