  1. It's Cercidiphyllum, either japonicum, or japonicum Pendulum if steeply weeping.
  2. There's a large one I see regularly. 3-4 year's ago I would have said it definitely had dieback, lot's of dead in the 1-2 year old wood, that yoghurty creamy-orange discolouration at the bottom of the younger dead branches, now it looks absolutely fine. Whether it's somehow come through it or not I don't know.
  3. Could it be Fraxinus monophylla? It's a long time since I've seen one but the leaf looks right.
  4. Hoheria, and not very well.
  5. I have one in my front garden, it's about 4.5m tall and 6m wide and has been in there about 10-15 years. It probably would be taller but the sea wind funnels down the side of the house and blasts right into it. It's nice when it's in flower but it's a bugger for dropping tiny leaves all over the car windscreen which then stick under the wipers. The wood on young growth on Acacia dealbata tends to be a lot greener, Albizia is slower growing but hardier.
  6. Still a bit blurry but Parrotia persica maybe?
  7. Sorry about the gap, Flowering crabapples, the genus Malus, by Father John Fiala is very good.
  8. I think you're right, Liset fruit does fit better with your picture, they both have the same parents Lemoinei and toringo/sieboldii. My book has Liset fruit as dark crimson to maroon-red, 1.2cm in diameter, Profusion is maroon or blood-red, 1.5cm dia.
  9. I agree the leaf is a similar shape to service tree, I guess it's the same family and within that grouping not that uncommon a leaf shape.
  10. Looking at the head shape I would guess Malus Golden Hornet. Can you see what colour the fruit is in the autumn in any streetview pictures
  11. Could it be Nothofagus antartica? (which is Chilean) The leaf seems a bit small and rounded for obliqua, and antartica has that white spotting on the young twigs and branches.
