Thread OP

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.
