Abstract

One of the more unusual trees that occur in Nebraska is the Kentucky coffeetree (Gymnocladus dioicus). Some books will tell you it is a medium sized tree but in this part of the country medium and large trees tend to blend together. Kentucky coffeetree is native from Lake Erie to Oklahoma and includes Kentucky on the southeastern side and Minnesota on the northwest. To no one’s surprise it is the state tree of Kentucky.
