Hi we have this tree growing in the garden (new house) , i`m not sure if its possible to identify without any leaves , does anyone have any idea what it could be


 


 

star gaze lily

Could be a Prunus...... flowering cherry.

I don't know what it is, but from the way it is breaking from the maim stem I think you have a brute there, I think it will be a huge thing in time.  

I think your right, I'll post another picture once the leaves are out,  thank you

Star gaze lily is right, it's a Prunus. The glossy bark of one of the stems indicates it's Prunus serrula.  http://apps.rhs.org.uk/plantselector/plant?plantid=1551 

It'll grow very wide, if you let it. Should you want to prune it, don't  take out stems that are over 8 cm in diameter, as these will start to rot away quite easily. Prunus' should be pruned in late Summer to prevent Silver Leaf.
