The winner !!!

I don't know what's wrong with them. I'd like to cut one down and see the growth rings but they block my neighbors house from sight so I probably won't.

There is a fourth one there that's really big.

I would of never guessed beech. That is some rough looking bark,for a smooth bark tree. I have alot of beech,with the cankers,but none look like that.

Those trees don't look like they should.  They look like I feel everyday.  >:(  Thanks for sharing - it's always interesting to see oddball stuff around this great country.

It is definitely a sunny beech for a beech  :)

Wow, I never would have guessed.

I think I'd have a forester look at them.

Thanks guys  :)

Yes, they are pretty rough looking. I can recognize most species by the bark when walking in the woods and these ones always throw me for a loop.

On the brighter side, there are a couple of larger beech with relatively few cankers around.

That was a good little brain teaser right there. I guess I'll need the coordinates so I can retrieve that coffee money   :D . Either that or you actually have a money tree on your hands  :D. If that's the case keep those coordinates all to yourself  ;).
