I asked the very same question last week Steve. Absolutely stunning tree when in full bloom at this time of year! Would never of guessed it was an ancient native tree.

It's the fruits you see at this time of year, pink on the outside with orange seeds. The flowers are tiny white things in early summer. Worth noting the plant is toxic.

 

I see a fair bit of it in gardens and native wood plantings but I don't recall seeing it wild, i.e. self sown.

 

Steves example looks to me a bit like a cultivar of some sort.

We have a few sites where it grows wild, a notable one being the Sheepleas above West Horsley, normally a good display at this time of year.
