SUGARBERRY (Celtis laevigata)- Sugarberry is a medium-sized tree native to the Coastal Plain and eastern Piedmont. It typically is a lowland tree, while in contrast, the very similar hackberry grows more frequently on uplands. When mature, Sugarberry reaches a height of about 80 feet and a diameter of about 18 inches. Its leaves are asymmetrical with smooth margins. The fruit, which ripens in September, is round and attached singly on a stalk. The fruit turns orange-red to yell when it is ripe. The bark is pale gray and is covered with prominent, warty protrusions. The wood is not strong and is quite coarse-grained. It is used mostly in the manufacturing of furniture.
