ID of small tree from terrible photo.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Could anyone point me in the right direction? It smelled a bit like laburnum.

Only one photo.

Thanks,

Mark.

Looks like magnolia to me

Cheers. I don't think it's a magnolia. Compound leaves, serrated towards the tips.

Long shot ... Acer negundo?

I thought that, but it doesn't seem to fit. Thanks though.

Looks abit like a elder to me but surely thats too obvious & it would have berries?

 

Leaves look slighty different than an elder maybe but the dead bit of wood @ rear & growth habit overall looks very elder-ish

Are those really compound leaves, or simple leaves born on a fresh shoot? Since they appear to be opposite, that could narrow it down.

Elder has a very distinct smell some reckon bit like cats piss also wood is hollow with pith inside.

 

Anyway look like it needs lopping but your suppose to ask the Elder Mother first: 😀

 

 

 

EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG

 

Various farmers have told me over the yrs that they   hate them growing in there hegdes as there basically seen as "evil"  etc didn't really understand why as no explanation was given,. maybe its some vague folklore memory past down....

 

Thought it was pretty odd...

 

One guy went round his land round chopping them all down... 🤔
