What is this tree??

Posted by turnerm3 Ohio (My Page) on

I just purchased my first home and am learning to care for the plants in my yard. Most of the shrubs and trees I can identify, so I have learned online how to care for them. I have two trees that I am unsure about. Can you help identify these trees?

It's hard to tell from the photos, but it has little hairs extending from the branches.

#2 looks like a willow of some type to me, perhaps a grafted tree that was never pruned?

Thank you very much for any help you have to offer. I'm so happy to have found this community of experts!

i am too lazy to load all 7 of your pix in new browsers... can you get them to load into the post itself... or at least make clickable links ...

the first reminds me of sumac ..


RE: What is this tree??

The bark on the second tree says it's a cherry. I'd also guess a cutleaf sumac for number one.

RE: What is this tree??

Ken, sorry to make it more difficult. After you replied, I remembered a thread I saw, so after 20 mins of searching I found your previous explanation of posting correctly. Hope I'm doing it the right way this time.
End tree #1

End tree #2

Thanks again.

RE: What is this tree??

I agree with calliope. First looks like Tiger Eyes sumac. Second looks like a cherry.
