    And many of them hybridize in the wild

    Thanks again for all the help guys!!!

    Not sure if this is what you mean by hybridize or not @Vanitas but there are several cedar trees real close to where this elm was.

    Exactly, there just wasn't much left of this one at all to ID it by, especially for a novice tree IDer like myself.

    The pore structure of hickory is completely different but by the bark it's 100% understandable why someone would think it is.
