Decidous. 80 to 90 feet high. One foot trunk diameter. Leaves are one and half inches long. No low hanging branches so took picture from dropped leaves. From a local woods in Massachusetts.

Thank You!

That looks like a pear. The leaves look like something in the rosaceae family for sure. Pear trees bloom white, smelly flowers during mid-late spring. The flowers look like tiny wild roses.
Maybe we should get a second opinion...

I googled and found two Pears that are apparently found in Massachusetts:

Callery Pear (Pyrus calleryana)

European Pear (Pyrus communis)
