Hey Permies,

This thread will be used to upload photos of plants (and trees) on the farm and I.D. them.  I would really appreciate any help

Our farm is 30min west of Akron Ohio zone 5b.  We are located in a temperate forest with damp woods and seasonal streams and wetlands.  We have wild black cherry, black walnut (is last pic black walnut?) Oak, maple, pine, hickory, willow, and that's about all I kinda know about.  I would like to learn specific varieties of some of the tree's too.

This was a cool flower blooming in shaded damp woods about a month ago.  Looks like it could be in the nightshade family?

The tree with the four-lobed leaves (20160624_181405.jpg) is a Tulip Poplar, I believe.

the tree with the "berries" looks like one of the shrubby dogwoods

color of berries  when ripe (aug/sept) will help identify species

The first one is a dogwood, possibly cornus sanguinea... As Duane says watch out for the berry color.

Steve

tulip poplars are a favorite tree of mine. The leaf shape is so wide and unique and the mature trees make great shade. Eventually your tree will form flowers that look like tulips late spring, early summer.  Birds love these flowers.

Our mornings are filled with songbirds.

You lucked out!

In the first pic to the background of the dogwood looks like hazel, either American or beaked
 
Are you okay? You look a little big. Maybe this tiny ad will help:
