I was taking a walk through my woods and passed by a tree I must have passed a hundred times before and never noticed.

I've never seen another like it -- notice the deep furrows of bark -- anyone have an idea what it is? The leaves aren't out yet, that would probably help! The branches that come of the tree are smooth.

No -- it's a live tree! I think that whatever kind it is that the bark is "normal"

The only tree I know of in my area that has bark anything like that is hackberry. I have a sapling section curing now in my garage.

I Googled around, and found this. Looks a lot alike to me.
