    It is hard to say from the pictures, but I'd scrounge any tree that is easy to reach.

    I don't really think yours is the same but looks close - hard to tell with the picture of bark so close

    I can't see the leaves or terminal bud well enough to id. The terminal bud will be at an angle. The leaf will also be rough feeling when you rub it.
