can anyone tell me what the strobilus of a tree is? I tried a botany dictionary, but it used even more unfamiliar words
I believe it is the cone of a gynosperm. so a pine cone such as the female (wood) seed producing cone or the pollen producing male cone

I understand that Carya Cordiformis has nine leaflets, but one of the people above said that Carya Glabra has the nuts but Carya Ovata also has nuts so how would you tell the difference between Carya Ovata and Carya Glabra? Is there any way to tell just by the leaves?

Glabra has 7 leaflets, Ovata has 5
If you're given bark, Ovata peels like mad (hence the name shagbark hickory)

In the Audubon book, it says glabra usually has 5 leaflets. Also, I don't know if this is specifically to Michigan but also how do you tell the difference between Carya Tomentosa?

Just wondering if ya'll are talking about the hickories. if so bitternut usually has nine and pignut and shagbark have 5 but the 3 front leaves of shagbark are big and almost same size and shape pignut has the nuts and the 3 front leaves are small with the middle one normally a bit smaller and differently shaped than hthe two on either side
