Default What Speces Tree is This?

I found some of these on my Property in Newfoundland. Some of them are massive with 4' diameter butts. It's not our normal White or Yellow Birch is Asps. Anyone know what it is?

My guess is: Tamarack


Newfoundland...what an interesting place to live. Would love to visit there someday.

It appears to be deciduous, which would include Tamarack, but to be sure you would need to see whether it has needles or leaves.



It's hard to identify trees when there is no foliage.

It has large leaves in the summer similar to maple leaves. They aren't quite the same shape as maple leaves, but more circular.

Tamarack has needles, so it's not tamarack.

They might be a Sycamore or London Plane. Are they near a house or where one once stood? Then it was planted and the possibilities are endless. If out in the bush someplace it would be natural to the region.

It definitely wasn't planted as it is a ways back from civilization.

Was under the impression that civilization had somewhat larger boundaries in Newfoundland 300 years ago than it currently does . If you can cut off a dead branch , sand the end grain well , and give us a picture it might help . Otherwise , you might have to wait for a leaf . Is this in a forested valley that wasn`t logged when the surrounding area was essentially clear cut , and converted to heath ?

This is in an area that hasn't been harvested in at least 100 years and possibly never. We have a lot of non-native trees on the island. From the Vikings, to the Spanish, to the French, to the English, a lot of different plants and animals have been brought here. Not to mention the fact that as we are an isolated island, a lot of our trees have literally evolved to suit life here. I can think of at least 10 different plant/animal species that only exist here. (There is even a blue tree lichen that only exists in a 50 square km area near where I live.)
