can anybody help me to identify this tree please? I think it may be some kind of birch, but if it is, I need to find out which one, so that I know just how much bigger it is likely to get. It's about 7m high at the moment.
It's in my garden in the east of Scotland, probably planted about 10 - 15 years ago.
Any help will be much appreciated.
That's not any kind of birch I've ever seen... birch have catkins, not
berries. Those fruit look like hawthorne but the leaves are wrong...
those fruit also look like linden but again the leaves are wrong.
Those leaves look somewhat like cherry but those fruit are not
cherries. You might want to bring a sample to a local nursery.
I'd say it's a cherry by the look of the bark, foliage and the fruit but
you'd be best placed asking in the uk.rec.gardening newsgroup as they at
least are British gardeners and I know there are a few Scots in that group.
