Tree

Bunny ...Bunny ... Posts: 3,471
I have a fairly tall tree possibly 10+ year old planted by previous owner but I don't know what it is. Slim tree , small green leaves in summer but turn almost black? And yellow in autumn before falling . I'm trying to find out about pruning it...whatever 'it' is .

    Bunny tomorrow take a picture -it might be recognisable from the branch formation-or someone may have one in their garden in an identical stageimage

    and get a close up of the buds.

    Can't think of anything that starts green, goes black, then yellow though
