Trees are cool and learning to identify the species of trees is fun. So why not make it a game, codified here? What follows is a list of tree species I’ve identified and their locations. Living in eastern Massachusetts, most of these are common in that area. When traveling, I try to identify a tree or two I don’t see at home. I identify the first tree I find of a species, which is typically the closest one to my home. If I find a better example of a species - a more magnificent specimen - I update the identification with that one. Previous and lesser specimens are listed on the detail page for each species.
Some species have multiple variants within a genus. These pages attempt to help identification of species within a genus.
Here are the individual species I’ve identified:
