Celtis sinensis - Chinese Hackberry

Medium textured tree with leathery leaves.

Distal 1/3 of leaf margins are crenate to serrate with entire margins about the leaf base. Leaf base is oblique, as is typical of the Elm family (Ulmaceae).

Smooth grayish brown bark takes on blackish margins and warty growths with age, often with shallow furrows and ridges.
