Hi,
I think this is some sort of crab apple tree. Is there any native crab apples in north america ? Anybody know what this is ?
thanks

Also grab a fruit and then open it up at home to see the inside structure.

Most of the leaves I can see look like Cornus, rather than Malus. But I think the fruit are Malus. I believe you have two trees there.

What is the reason you think it must be a native crab? Couldn't it be a seedling cultivation?

the tree is at a farm stream and not located by any residence.
It is a hodgepodge of plant growth for sure. That's why I think it is a native crab apple and not cultivated. When I get back there I will separate the tree's so leaves will match the fruit.
I did cut open a fruit and it was white inside with what looked like a pair of apple seeds in the inside. Not a whole lot of fragrance almost orderless.

A crab-apple but not native. Seedlings of cultivated kinds come up here and there, same as with orchard apples.
