Got a problem. For various reasons (too complicated to go into) My House Insurance renewal got a last minute delay. A Possible insurer wants to know the type of tree growing in my garden, near to the House.
Does anyone know how to identify it.
All in feet and inches I'm afraid. No metricals in this house.
Its about 15 - 20 feet high.
Trunk about 9 inches Diameter/36 inches circumf
Bark, Very rough, with vertical grooves about an inch apart.
A few green leaves on each twig, Each leave almost heart shaped tapering down to its stem, serated edges.
leaves about an inch wide, possibly one and a half inches long excluding the stem, one to five leaves on each stem, and several stems from a slightly larger stem.
(but remember time of year, probably not fully grown)

Welllll, I hasve been trying to find Camera, and the Thingy to charge the the battery, BUT ... yes theres always a BUT ... I cant find how to connect either the camera with its card in it, or separately plug in the card - any ideas anyone. The Camera has a different plug socket to anything else that I can find...
OK, answer to last question. How old ? - Don't know, I've only lived here forty years. Does it Flower? - NO Colour of leaves? - Light green, but that may be because it is this seasons leaves. Small tree? - No it it reaches above my rooftop, so I'd guess anything up to 20 feet
Thanks for everybuddy - I needed to know the type of tree because my House insurer is worried about The house falling down. A very short-notice request to renew my insurance. I think the broker has found another underwriter.
The tree has several leaves of slightly different shapes - My guess is that the new (this year) growth is only just forming. Some are that shape, some are Heart shaped, and they have anything from a single up to 7 on each stalk. Generally the leaves are "Bristles" on the edges but not sharp, The colours in your two photos are about the same front and back colours as my tree.
Is this relevant: This house was built in 1970, and I bought it in 1980. It is possible that the original owner planted the tree, but this estate was formerly a woodland in Somercotes Farm, so it may have not been fomaly "planted".
Much thanks for your interest - I will search for the apprpriate cable to download camera to 'pooter.
