    Looks like something in the plum/peach catagory. Shame you forgot to check for fruit!

    I was thinking maybe some kind of crabapple. The leaves look a lot like apple leaves. The tree that I took the picture of is almost 20 feet tall. Isn't that kind of big for wild plums or peaches?

    I think so too, that it might be a plum...maybe a pear? Leaves don't look like crab apple to me.

    Could also be a cherry tree. Check for fruit later. That's the best way top know.

    Thanks for all the replies. I'm going down there & tie a big orange ribbon on it so I can remember which one it is after the flowers are gone, & then maybe I can find out if it has fruit.
