have alternate leaves, often variously lobed, and
staminate flowers in catkins. The fruit is a smooth nut,

recognized about three hundred species, of which nearly
fifty occur in the United States, the rest in Europe,
Asia, and the other parts of North America, a very few

proportions and live many centuries. The wood is usually

rays, forming the silver grain.
