    I think it is an Olea europaea (olive tree) which has been 'cloud pruned'.  That is a very old tree, several decades I would say.  An example is on this page:

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thank you very much  Bob!!       In your opinion is the tree of any value or is it a poor specimen?

    Are you buying or selling?  :) 
    We've had one on our patio for about 10yrs and its trunk is barely 20cm in diameter!

    Hi mikey-  still debating but probably looking to sell if viable  as we don't think it really fits in with our  revised garden plans!
