Can a any one tell me what sort of a birch tree this is. I have decided to have a birch in my garden and came across this one on my dog walk today and I love it. The bark looked beautiful in the sun and the blossom was so pretty.
Mind you theres me calling it a birch when it may not be !
Thanks in advance
There's no photo Sara but anything with blossom isn't a birch, they have little catkins
Here's another PIC of the bark
Where was that photo when I looked first
One of the cherries I should think
Not a birch with all that blossom. Some kind of cherry or plum possibly. You will get more ideas from other forum folks soon. A very pretty tree though.
Sorry nutcutlet, I could blame my computer but that would be a lie !!
Oh, I thought it was a birch because of the bark. Hopefully with a picture someone could enlighten me. X
Always blame the computer Sara I do
The bark has a hint of the lovely rich cinnamon colour of the Prunus serrula and the flowers are right, but they usually have much more colour in the trunk
I agree, almost certainly a cherry. If you can get near enough to smell the blossom, cherries hardly ever have a noticeable scent but plums usually do smell 'flowery'.
Thanks everyone, when I walk the dog up there next I will have a sniff !
