Tree growing in Montreal.

Never seen any squirrel or bird eating from it.

Photo of berries.

Tree is the size of a service berry approx.

Cut one open and see if it resembles an apple (Malus). If so then you have a crabapple (also Malus).

Ken, the fruit is the size of a serviceberry, but I wasn't planning to eat it anyway ;-)

Thanks for the recommendations though.
