Hog plum tree

The hog plum is a small to medium-sized deciduous tree reaching between 50 to 60 feet in height and with 2 ½ feet in trunk diameter. The bark of the hog plum tree is whitish-brown or gray, rather smoothish except for many spinelike projections ¼ to ¾ inch long, becoming rough and furrowed. I found this hog plum tree trunk to be short. Usually, the trunk of hog plum is tall where you can’t reach the fruits from the standing on the ground. This beautiful specimen of a hog plum tree is located in Estate Grove Place. (Photo by Olasee Davis)
