Description

Texas Hackberry, also known as Celtis laevigata, is a species of tree native to the southern United States, particularly in Texas. It is a member of the hackberry family (Cannabaceae) and is commonly found in bottomland forests, along riverbanks, and in wetlands.

Texas Hackberry is a deciduous tree that can grow up to 50 feet in height. It has a spreading crown and a straight trunk with grayish-brown bark that becomes rough and corky as the tree ages. The leaves of the Texas Hackberry are simple, alternate, and serrated, with a glossy dark green upper surface and a paler underside. In the fall, the leaves turn a yellowish color before dropping.

One of the notable features of Texas Hackberry is its fruit. The small, round, and dark purple fruits are about the size of a pea and are edible for wildlife and humans. The fruits ripen in the late summer and are a favorite food source for birds, squirrels, and other animals.

In terms of wood, Texas Hackberry is not as highly prized as some other hardwoods. Its wood is relatively soft and not very durable, making it less suitable for high-quality woodworking projects. However, it is sometimes used for making furniture, cabinetry, and small wooden items.
