(Celtis occidentalis )
The common hackberry is easily distinguished from elms and some other hackberries by its cork-like bark with wart-like protuberances. The leaves are asymmetrical and coarse-textured. The hackberry produces small berries that turn orange-red to dark purple in the autumn, often staying on the trees for several months.
