My new next door neighbours want me to cut down a berry bearing tree that is obstructing their view (and giving the local squirrels access to my roof ). No problem says I, but I'd like to ID it first. It wasn't easy, the leaves are shaped differently depending on where on the tree you are looking. They grow in leaflet whorls, as simple leaves in opposite formation but mostly as simple alternate leaves. My Peterson Eastern Trees Guide suggests either a Northern Hackberry, a Dwarf Hackberry (my guess) or maybe even a Fire (Pin) Cherry. Here are the pics: Any ideas?
