What kind of tree is this?
« on: July 01, 2022, 03:52:52 PM »
 

 


We had a large oak cut down, and the tree crew cut down this small tree/bush too, to make room for their trucks.  The tree is only 3' now. It grew from the stump. The stump is approx 1.5" in diameter.
I'll post more pictures below.

The leaves look big, because the tree's so small I guess, and because its a more mature tree than it looks -it was cut off an inch from ground.
The leaves are approx 1.75" x 1.25"

It could be wild raisin.

Texas Ranger
I'm in Mint Hill, NC. Near Charlotte.

Swamp Donkey
It doesn't produce any flowers nor fruit.


I think this tree will be hard to ID, because like I told in the OP, what you all are looking at in the pictures are the sprouts from the stump --around 2 years of growth since it was cut down, from a trunk that's approx 1" from ground, and approx 1.5" in diameter.
 
There's another one just like it, that was cut off an inch from the ground at the same time. Maybe you guys will be able to tell more from the other one. See more pictures below.
In the first 2 pictures you can see the stump, then the new limbs sprouting out of it. Same picture, just one zoomed in to show stump.

Here's a couple more pictures, but I don't think they're even as good as the first pictures.  Thanks for looking and trying to help, guys.

Long skinny tip buds would say wild raisin. It seems to have a bush habit. That one photo with the tall sucker and all the side shots reaching for dominance is a bush habit. They don't flower until they get real bushy.

Camelia would be serrated, and Carolina Laurel Cherry would be alternately arranged and likely have some leaves with serrations.  It resembles Japanese privet but does not exactly match up but I suspect it is a woody ornamental nursery plant common to your area.  Maybe a Tea Olive (Osmanthus sp.).

It look to me to be some type of introduced exotic and not a native plant.

Definitely agree with SwampDonkey. Wild Raisin.

Those leaves and bark look exactly like a Service Berry tree I recently identified on my property. If you never actually see any berries its because the birds get them right away even before they are ripe.
Change is hard....
Especially when a jar full of it falls off the top shelf and hits your head!
