  4. It does have beautiful bark. Size and general shape can help with identification. Can you get a picture of the entire tree?

  6. I've googled both the shag bark hickory and birch images and it comes very close to resembling the birch trees. I love it!

  8. well if it is commonly called papyrus tree it would make sense for it to be in the birch family. No way is it shagbark hickory though. Have been doing a bit of googling while I wait for a reply from the person I thought could be of help. It is elusive!
