About plant names...

Hackberry is a native of the western and southwestern United States.

Identification: Tree reaches 30-40' (9.1-12 m), with a wide spreading crown and crooked branches. Leaves are 2-4" (5-10 cm) long, leathery, oval-shaped with pointed ends, sometimes with a few widely spaced teeth. They are dark green. The common name ”netleaf hackberry” derives from the fact that the undersides of leaves have a raised network of veins. Flowers are tiny, pale green. Fruit is red-orange, ¼-⅜" (6.3-9.5 mm) in diameter.
