A friend has asked what this tree is - I'm not brilliant at ornamental trees so please HELP!!!
Soz Dove I'm no help.
Well you'd better make some mince pies then
Bet nut knows!
one of the crab apples?
I think it's a crab apple, note the word "think"!
But I don't know really Bob. Just the shape of the fruit and likely roadside plantings
Oh, crossed with Nut, but we both think the same. Fruit can vary a lot from round to oval, red, orange to yellow and the end can be neat and apple like or messier and more star like as the one in the picture. It looks like an oldish, unpruned tree.
I was thinking crab apple but wasn't at all certain - thanks folks !
Definitely one of the Malus persuasion. Only a few hundred to choose from!
Just realised, there is one of those opposite my house; it is stunning at this time of year. My first thought was some kind of crab apple.
