I am trying to work out what type of tree these two are. If anyone can shed any light, I'd be grateful. smile

The second looks like a Rowan, also known as mountain Ash. The first on looks like an overgrown bush, such as Laurel.

Don't think the first one is a bush. That's a photo of the trunk and it's approx 12m high.

Had a Google. Apparently laurels can grow into huge trees. And it looks like a cherry laurel. Thanks again JT smile

Your welcome! We have a huge garden that was full of overgrown bushes! It was a steep learning curve!

Laura's can be cut back hard and will sprout again from the bottom. Rowens are rather lovely trees and don't grow too huge. Folklore implies that they keep away evil spirits and were often found at the gates of houses.
