    Hello Mitchio. It could possibly be a mulberry tree.

    Is this tree in UK?

    If you look at the stem there are tiny round leaflets at the base of the leaf stalk.
    These are called stipules.
    Morus...common name Mulberry do not have these.
    I would be happier to see flowers, seeds, berries to aid with id.

    This is just a suggestion...
    A tree that is large and has stipules on the alternate leaves, is Salix sp...common name Willow.

    Thank you for your comments.

    I didn't even know that stipules where a thing.

    This tree is in Kent.  I've had my eye on it for a while and haven't seen it flower.  I shall keep my eye on it.

    It's a beautiful tree. The picture doesn't do it justice.
