We moved in to a new house in winter so never seen tree with leaves on. I'm trying to identify it but struggling. Any ideas? The pic with leaves is taken from the estate agents website when we were viewing so I'm afraid I don't have a better pic than that. The other pic I've taken today. Can anyone help?

How embarrassing the I pad refused to upload pic. I had to run and grab my phone. This is how it looks today.

Looks like something small, possibly ornamental. I think you'll have to wait for the leaves or blossom.

No idea, but your garden looks lovely on the summer!

Can you describe the shape of the leaves? Or any picture of them, even if it is some smoothed out dropped ones from last year?

The estate agents pic looks like spring with the tree not fully in leaf so it's not much help.

You might have to wait until the leaves are open a bit later in the year, but there are any buds developing now then a close up pic might be of help.

Have you tried this:

i'd suggest rowan or some sort of cherry. ...just from the size and shape, am not an expert and those two tend to be v popular.

JumpingJellybeanz Fri 24-Mar-17 17:37:25

My first thought was rowan too.

Ooh thankyou everyone. My garden is lovely highinthesky. It's the reason we chose the house! I can't wait for good weather to enjoy it. It does have some very small buds ill try and get a close up now.

My camara is rubbish and keeps taking blury shots. So the bud pic is not great. I live next door to woodland/parkland so it's possible leaf I've found could have blown into garden but it was directly under tree so its most likely from my tree.

OP does the summer pic show lots of red berries? I can't see it large enough but if so poss Rowan.

Pic from estate agents a pear to have been taken early summer or spring as tree still seems slightly sparce but no from what I can see only leaves, no flowers or berries.

JumpingJellybeanz Fri 24-Mar-17 17:59:12

If that's from your tree then it's definitely not a rowan.

AndHoldTheBun Fri 24-Mar-17 17:59:34

Don't think it's a rowan as the bud shape and bark look wrong (looking at mine right now).

Maybe a pear?

JumpingJellybeanz Fri 24-Mar-17 18:01:29

That looks like a type of oak leaf.

JumpingJellybeanz Fri 24-Mar-17 18:07:57

Pear trees have largish oval leaves. The type a kid would draw if told to draw a leaf. We have 3 in our garden, they're flippin massive.

Could it be maple? I have loads of maple seeds all over garden but as I say I live in a very woody area so can't be sure where they have come from.
