[Landscaping] Help Identifying Tree

I am hoping that someone who visits this forum can identify the tree that I have in my front yard. It was there when we bought the house and I haven't a clue. Hard to care for it properly without knowing what it is.

[Landscaping] Re: Help Identifying Tree

Wild guess from me is crab apple.

I can't help with the ID, other than to say maybe an ornamental cherry?

BTW, regardless of type it is one planted way too close to the house!

Have you checked with the local Tree Service or maybe at LCCC...not sure if they have a department that would cover stuff like that. Lorain County has so many different types of trees.

That sort of looks like a giant Fuchsia tree ... but you live in Ohio!

not oak, not maple, not any pine coniferous.

but from it's diameter it's probly 150 years old, so don't worry too much about caring for it...

Here's the deal.

You should never let a tree grow that close to your house.

I came to this page and then it does not match any branch - one red buckeye but it is not that either. It seems to have more than 5 leaves coming out from same point in the stalk.

The flowers are also less droopy than giant Fuchsia.

here's a place with an app that lets you submit a phone picture of the leaves or flower for automatic identification.

»leafsnap.com/

haven't tried it though.

That's one of those "nimis propinquus ad domum" trees, a direct descendant of the "absque hoc quod cogitaret" species.

Yes! I am also 100% sure after comparing with this photo from Google. I had never checked them up close before.

I can't use the app listed above by oldenuf because I do not have a cell phone that will run the app.

I wholeheartedly agree. Who knows what kind of damage the roots are doing underneath.

Leaf cluster and flowers match up very well - I am sure you have a really old specimen of "Royalty" type. They apparently don't have many fruits anyway.

Old age, shade from the house, lack of pollinating insects, and other factors may be to blame if you never saw any fruit.

P.S. This list has several types which have flowers, but no fruits at all.
