Don't know what this is either - small tree.
Any ideas appreciated.
Here is the photo of the whole tree.
It might possibly be some variety of plum; the flowers look a bit similar

amelanckier - or snowy mespilus
Serviceberries AKA Amalanchier
Which Amelanchier do you mean?
For A lamarckii the foliage is too pointy, and the tree on the pic has an unusual habitus for A.
Have never seen an Amelancjier lam. with peeling bark,
Going by the leaves, bark and branching, it looks like some Prunus/ plum/ wild cherry thing to me.
Well, let' see, bye, Lin
Thank you all, this gives me good chance to narrow it down.
Tree is growing between too many other trees in pretty neglected 'garden'. I know that none of them were tended to for more than 5 yrs. Only grass was cut few times/yr.
I have to do lots of work there & eliminate some trees, so I am trying to get them ID-ed.

thought it was possibly amelanchier canadensis.
campanula, It may be.
I'll watch closely this spring for other features to ID it.
A close up of the bark on a fair sized branch (but not the split part) would decide it. Does it have horizontal lines?
Definitely a plum, keep looking at those.

I don't have any more photos, but will get some in next few days - I hope.
thank you for posting that info, I am saving it. Have to get some photos & compare...Rina
At the start we can see it is not an Amelanchier because those produce flowers in racemes, resulting in a tassel-, spike- or tuft-like appearance to the inflorescence. The veining of the leaves and branching habit are also different.
