This hawthorn tree (Crataegus) is rather old and thick for being out in the wild. Hawthorns are a small understory tree in the woods. This is along the Wabash River trail near Lafayette, between the US 52 bridge and Heron Island. The younger tree in the background to the left of the old trunk is also a hawthorn tree. Picture taken Dec. 25, 2010.
