Bunny ...
I have a fairly tall tree possibly 10+ year old planted by previous owner but I don't know what it is. Slim tree , small green leaves in summer but turn almost black? And yellow in autumn before falling . I'm trying to find out about pruning it...whatever 'it' is .
Bunny ...
I know ... Wish I had . As it is now wont help . Looked in books and can't see it .
flowering rose

not a silver birch?what is the bark like?


Bunny ...
No I have birch , just grey bark . I shall look through old house build pics and see if I can find anything with it on . There are some on my pad but won't load bigger.


Bunny ...
small leaves...not much help there I know

Bunny tomorrow take a picture -it might be recognisable from the branch formation-or someone may have one in their garden in an identical stage


and get a close up of the buds.

Can't think of anything that starts green, goes black, then yellow though
