Does anyone know what this small tree could be? Only managed to get a few pictures, cannot figure it out
I'm not totally sure Mandy but the leaves look very Camellia like so it could be one of those.
my first thought was one of the larger cotoneasters. grown up, hacked back, regrown.
C. lacteus or C.frigidus maybe
Good shout there nutcutlet. I'd go with that ID.
Definitely, by that new leaf. C. frigidus, I'd go with, it's less obviously 'veiny'. Good spot, Nut.
That would be my number one bet as well.
