general characteristics of hackberry end grain (very similar to elm)





NOTE: netleaf hackberry is technically Celtis laevigata var reticulata but it is often listed by woodworkers as Celtis reticulata even though, if one is going to omit the fact that it is a variety, it should be Celtis laevigata, not Celtis reticulata
