I can't Bob, but probably the folks in the Commwealth of Mass
Agricultual Dept. can. Its been awhile since I have had to
seek their assistance but I think the Waltham Field Station
is probably still on Beaver Street, Watham, Ma. If you aren't
familar with it, you can reach it by going northly on Beaver
Street (less than 500'probably) from State Route 60 (which
starts off of Route 20 in Waltham)
I would be inclined to take a small branch that had regular
leaves, as well as some suspected leaves for their observation.
