What is this ornamental tree please?

..I think you were right earlier with Swedish Whitebeam - Sorbus intermedia.

''S. intermedia was introduced to cultivation in 1789, and is now widely planted as an ornamental tree, especially in town streets and parks.''

..from Online Atlas of British and Irish street trees

..both RHS Wisley online and Telegraph Garden Shop use Crocus to supply their says on their terms and conditions...

... it might be better in future to order direct from them...

...just catching up with photos on this thread...all very nice...I do like the landscape ones in particular.... is that Lake Windermere above there little-ann...? 

...if my house is still standing by end of tomorrow...I might post a couple more as I'd like some advice.... wind is terrible here.. I can see a Silver Birch tree looks precarious in the's huge..and ripe for destruction in something like this...houses nearby too...not mine...I can sense a '1987' brewing...

...I also have a wind tunnel and I shut the whole lot up... I don't know if it's the best thing to do but it's what I feel safer with...I'm afraid something will blow out otherwise..

^...that's 'Spartan'....very nice too, isn't it?... right off the tree is best.... I find the shop ones don't taste as nice, having been left to hang around a bit...rather like Cox in that way, I find... I want another one...

...that apple of Fairygirl's looks like one I used to grow in my last garden called 'Spartan'... I grew it not only for it's flavour but because of that rich dark's self fertile and ripens at this time of year.... should be some in the shops soon... the flesh should be pure white...if not, then it's something else..
