Help needed with tree id
I'm currently undertaking a little project to identify all major species of tree/bush in our summerhouse garden. However, this one tree has just been really difficult for me to place.
The tree is a good 5m/15ft tall with the trunk splitting very close to the ground and lots of dense, low spreading foliage. It's located in Denmark.
The leaves are very finely toothed, perhaps c. 7cm/3in long. The underside is slightly white with a prominent white central vein. Younger branches have white spots/lenticels on them, but the trunk is a plain smooth greyish brown. Sadly there are no apparent seeds or fruits at the moment, which has made identification a real pain.
I'm attaching a second picture in the following post. It's not exactly great, obscured by rain, a rusty badminton net, a couple of yews and some birch/rowan in the background. It does at least give an overall shape perspective though. I've also attached a link to my photobucket gallery, with more images of the tree.
A huge thanks for any help you can offer - I know it's not much to go on!
