As I was looking at the Sept. 21 edition of The Lancaster News, a sentence in Joanna Angle’s “Tree Talk” article on the black gum jumped out at me: “A member of the dogwood family, nyssa sylvatica is also commonly called black tupelo....”
While it is true that nyssa sylvatica or black gum is also called black tupelo; it is not in the dogwood family, but in the nyssaceae, or tupelo family.
Trees in the family cornaceae compose the dogwood family, which contains our common local dogwood, flowering dogwood or cornus florida.
