I found this site yesterday,

thread I had posted earlier.

That’s a good resource Dick.

But at my age, people shouldn’t be out in the snow in the winter.

Thanks Dick. I don’t have many trees on my house property, an old birch and blue spruce, and three young maples we planted 6 yrs ago or so. But we have a few acres adjacent to my mother-in-laws house, and they are all trees. Fairly predictable, mostly birch and spruce. They will have to be culled, but I don’t think there is anything for woodworking there, unfortunately.

Thanks Dick,
Not sure if it only applies to trees that are grown in the Northeastern U.S.
But I was taught in school that the only trees that have parallel branches are:
Maple
Ash
Dogwood and Buckeye.
Was taught MAD Buck to remember these.

Interesting, but we don’t have any native deciduous trees in NZ, not much of a winter and none of those trees! Winter tree identification is easy here – same as summer!
