Could you ID this tree?
Could you ID the tree with the above pictures.
I don't have any other informations about the tree except this piece of bark.
The bark is soft to the touch (not hard) and the color is a very pale gray. It's easy to take a big piece of the bark. It is very flexible and doesn't broke easily if you fold it. The bark is like a lot a little sheets placed one on the others. The trunk is covered by a lot of green moss.
The tree is located at Quebec city in Canada, in a forest made of easthern red oaks (quercus rubra), easthern hemlocks (tsuga canadensis) and american beechs (fagus grandifolia). Each of those three are equaly represented in number and in all sizes (some has 2 feets of dbh). They are dominated although by many easthern white pines (pinus strobus). There are some sugar maple and northem white cedars (thuja occidentalis). It loo like a virgin forest.
I think that my piece of bark doesn't come from one of the trees that I mentionned. I thought it could be an easthern hophorbeam (ostrya virginana) or a white oak but I'm really not sure.
Thanks a lot for your help.
