Field Notes
We looked at the leaves on the paper and on the tree and it was a match to the maple. The bark is cracky and broken. It also looks like a young tree. One branch has a different type of leaf going off from it than the rest of the branches and one branch was going a weird direction. It seems like the tree was a hybrid of two different kinds of trees.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
The tree that we studied was a Maple tree. It had the right leaves except for one branch that didn't. The bark had cracks in it and it was kind of smooth. It looked like a young tree because the bark didn't have red in the cracks.

Comments

Perfect pics for ID by leaves and bark. The different leaves are certainly from a different tree that grew into the maple. When they were young. Lots of odd happenings like that in the forest
