Hello! This fast growing "tree" established itself on our front slope. We live in the mountain area of Western North Carolina. I may need to remove it before it gets any bigger. I'm attaching photos of it bare in winter, leafing out in the spring, the bark and leafed out in summer. It grows about 2 feet a year I think. It must be over 15 feet tall now. It has no fall color. The leaves just turn brown and drop off. I have not seen any flowers, seeds or fruit of any kind. Thanks for your help with this!

Looks like black cherry, Prunus serotina.

I agree with cherry.

Thank you, friends! I'm wondering why it has never flowered or produced fruit?
