|First, I wanted to say thanks for the help.
I believe this is a wild cherry tree (Black Cherry) but I'm not sure. I did not have a cluster of leaves and you can see that the leaf I took already turned yellow. It in normally green. Also, it does flower a little but never any fruit. You can see that where I cut a limb off two weeks ago has turned that dark cherry color. Anyway I need help. I am having my pond extended and this tree is going to be cut down. I hate it but for the sake of the pond it has to go. I do a lot of bbq and smoking and would like to use it so it really doesn't go to waste.
Again thanks for the help.

|You haven't said where this plant is (city, state, etc.), which always helps determine what it could be and/or what it cannot be.
That said: everything you've shown indicates classic native Black Cherry - Prunus serotina. Some might say you've got a valuable furniture log there.
