How well can you identify tree species without leaves? Although leaves are now on their way out for our deciduous friends, many trees are proudly displaying fruit. Test your knowledge on the following fun finds from a recent walk at Hoyt Arboretum. Although not all of these species were found in this year's street tree inventory, they might make great street trees!

Middle Row: Japanese raisin tree (Hovenia dulcis), California buckeye (Aesculus californica), and Persian ironwood (Parrotia persica).
