Ohio's Trees

From the Ohio Department of Natural Resources comes this wonderful reference on the trees of the State (bot native and introduced). The site includes an Introduction, Glossary, an Index to 101 species of trees for which narrative accounts are provided, and a list of Ohio’s Big Trees. The species accounts are illustrated with photographs showing distinguishing features and are full of interesting tidbits. As but one example, I learned that the large fruits of the Osage Orange (Maclura pomifera) "were reportedly sliced in half by the pioneers and used to attract and poison houseflies."
