Why is this happening to my tree?

Recommended Posts

I have what i think is a dog wood tree in my front garden, but recently i noticed there was another branch growing iff of it with completely different leaves, the new branch looks like a service tree.

Can anyone help answer why this has happened please.

 

Cheers, Harry

Are you CERTAIN it comes from the same tree? Not just a seedling snuck in near the base?

 

If it is.

 

Possibly a rarer spécimen sorbus grafted on to root stock, does the rogue piece come from near the base under a graft scar?

Don't know if this matters but at the base of the tree there is two types of saplings, one is dogwood and the other is this mysterious leaf thingy
