i need help identifying this tree please , I have a few specimen trees in our cottage garden in Wiltshire that we have inherited from previous owners But this one is stumping us all .
Look up koelreuteria paniculata. If it's that, then you may be able to find the remains of the seed pods on the ground, papery bladders, inch or so across
We have only been in this property for about 6 weeks and I couldn't see any seed pods on the ground in that time , I have had a look at some pictures of the tree you suggested and the leaf certainly looks like the coral sun verity , thank you . I will try and see how I best nurture it now ?
Just let it do its thing. Large panicles of tiny yellow flowers in summer followed by the pods which turn pinky-orange.
there are quite a few dead branches on the tree , can I take them off at any time of year ?
Yes, dead stuff can be removed anywhen. If they're larger ones, do a little undercut first, then cut from the top, to ensure the branch doesn't fall and strip bark down from below the cut
