My Chicago Botanic Garden
A blog for visitors to the Garden.
CIMG1076 looks like it belongs to the same tree I have. I was it was a male English walnut tree. Is this correct? Are the berries poisinous?
I would be grateful for any info on this tree. Thank you
That tree is a hackberry, Celtis occidentalis. The berries are edible to us and wildlife.
To learn more about the hackberry, you can go to the Garden’s Plant Information pages of the website: https://www.chicagobotanic.org/plantinfo/tree_alternatives/hackberry
