The Q&A Archives: would like to know what kind of tree I have and if it is poisoneous

Question: I have a tree in my yard that makes cherry like fruit. It has dark green pointed leaves- the bark is dark also. I would like to know if these are some kind of cherries and or if they are poisoneous.

Answer: I really can't identify your tree by the description you've given but I'm sure that if you take samples of the leaves and of the fruit to your local nursery and/or cooperative extension office helpful folks there can key it out and identify it for you.
