Agree with Ladybird.


Prunus spinosa...blackthorn...slow.


Always has nasty thorns.

tree identification

I believe it is a gift from the birds...willow..Salix sp.


I think I can see leaf stipules in your pic.....


Those tiny leaf like bits at the bottom of the stalk.


I recommend you remove it asap before it becomes a giant!

What tree is this?

Posted: 01/08/2017 at 09:43

Definitely Prunus sp...cherry.


Judging by the glands on the leaf stalk  ....Prunus avium would be my suggestion.

Sorry but your pic is not at all clear.


Good close ups would help.


Cydonia oblonga..Quince fruits are like large pears.
