Riparian shrubby plant id

Asked February 12, 2020, 3:14 PM EST

Ran across this small tree in a boggy area along the Popo Agie River near Lander, WY. Aspen, cottonwoods, alders, Cornus sericea, Typha and numerous Salix spp. share the area. Could you help me identify this tree/shrub? One of its distinguishing features is its rough scaly bark. Sorry for the poor photos.

Thanks for sending along the pictures. If you are able to send new pictures of the existing leaves and a picture of the entire shrub/tree with some more detail it would be greatly appreciated. It is hard to tell with the pictures that have been sent. The tree might be Acer negundo or something similar. Unfortunately, better pictures are needed.

Thanks!
