I apologize to be the second post about oleander recently! But my tree does look a bit different, I think? The plant identification app returns an "oleander" result but the leaves look serrated, and my understanding is that oleander leaves aren't. Can anyone help confirm? I am including a picture of the trunk as well, which seems quite distinct. We have about half a dozen of these trees along the fence line of our new house. There are no flowers or buds (yet?) and we are in Rhode Island. We have three small children and two dogs, so the thought of it being oleander makes me a bit nervous. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Not an oleander. It may be a willow but, not young, just ones that are cut down every year.
