I agree – this looks like Carya to me, too

It might be one of the Hickory species – Carya

If it is boxelder it still has to be D. acerina.

I just posted the photo of the tree. It looks like an ash, but the bark is not. Now I’m confused. Is it boxelder?

Which tree?

I have the specimen to prove it. But the conspicuous white thing here is a basidomycete. I’m qualified to identify it. Given the cryptic nature of the lichen, I’m going to change the name.

Looks like a fungus in Aleurodiscus or Dendrothele
