The Georgia hackberry (Celtis tenuifolia) belongs to Ulmaceae (the Elm family). It is a small deciduous tree that is distributed from the eastern part to the south-central part of the United States, and from Maryland to Florida and eastern Texas. This tree grows on limestone ridges and gravel, and is about 7.5 m high. The bark is gray with cork ridges. The leaves are broad-ovate, alternate, and have no serrations. In early spring, small green flowers come on the axils. The fruits are drupes and ripen brown or red from late summer to fall.
