|The Hackberry Bark|
The characteristic bark has what looks like corky bumps all over the bark. The leaves are alternate, 2-5 inches long, and 1-2 inches wide. The leaf base is rounded, unequal, the margins are coarsely serrate, and the tip are pointed.
The Hackberry tree is the host plant for several species of butterflies including one called the Hackberry butterfly.
