Common Hackberry

Celtis occidentalis

Fast Track Featured

The common hackberry is adapted to survive in most soil conditions. The leaves turn a bright yellow in the fall. Birds eat the small cherry-like fruit in early winter. The hackberry’s bark is smooth when young, but it develops a distinctive texture with rough corky ridges as the tree matures. This resilient tree is tolerant of both flooding and drought.
