i have a tree that I don't know firstly what it is secondly if it's dead or not! can someone help please.
It has been until the last week very overlooked and cramped by a next door neighbours tree hanging over into my garden but that has now been removed giving it space and light. I am about to build a garden deck and had intended to build around this tree anod leave it as a feature hoping its half dead look would go and it could become quite attractive.
i have shown some photos below of it to help including a close up of leaf and what appear like catkins.
hope someone can identify
