The sugar hackberry, or sugarberry, is a fast-growing large tree with a broad vase-shaped crown. While its native range is south of Maryland, it’s very hardy. Its small sweet fruits attract many species of birds. The leaves turn bright yellow in the fall, and the silvery bark has a few corky growths providing interest year-round.
