    I think water hickory looks very close, but I read those need very wet media, almost bogish. I doubt that happens here. So Arizona walnut is the closest so far I think. I found the exact location, here is a google street level mapping of it. Maybe these further pics will help too.

    Ok, showed the pics on my phone to the main plant guy at lowes... He's actually one that does know what he's talking about... And he came to the conclusion of Chinese Pistache (Pistacia chinensis) which I think is also in the same group as the ones being suggested here. He's says they're commonly used in parks and things up there also... Whatcha think?

    Hmm, leaves look similar, but i cant find pics of any pistache with the same girth as your trees.
    And most importantly imho the fruit..
    On your pics i see 2 things that might be fruit/seeds, the little green things that might be wingnuts and other things in the middle of the pics that might be walnuts.
    I don't see anything on the pics that might indicate pistache like fruit/flowers.

    Yah, the pistache pics do look like much smaller trees overall. The ones we saw the trunks were massive, and the canopy as well.

    and.. I looked up wingnut tree and those seemed to make strands of fruit. I think this tree had more of individual fruits...

    hello,i dont know if i'm posting this correctly, but i am responding to an email that you submitted to our helpdesk, so please let me know.
    The trees that you're discussing are in one of our parks here in florence. a couple of the posters were correct including the guy from Lowes. the large trees are chinese pistachio and the reason for their girth are that they are over 40 years old. The only question i have myself is, there are two different types, but from what ive gathered they are close cousins to each other. I dont know enough about them to say but they have been that same size since i started her ten years ago. close exam will show slight differences in the leaves and trunk. if anybody has anything to add, i'd sure appreciate it.thanks.

    Hi Ray, and thanks for your imput That was me that emailed you linking this topic I created for further information and discussion. I live down in Tucson I think chinese pistachio is close enough an ID for us... But if you want to try and further ID your trees I'm willing to bet the folks around here could do so if you could get some better pictures than I posted (probably of the fruits, bark etc). Your tree leaves do change nice colors come fall right? We found that with the chinese pistachio pictures and really love that!!
    Thanks for joining and the information
    Andrew

    PS Nice park there, but I was a little bit confused by the newer desert trees that were planted just under the end of the canopy of these trees... any insight on the planning of that?
