I wasn't sure if this is some sort of dogwood.

Welcome!

I don't think its a Dogwood. It looks like an apple tree to me.

That's not an apple tree nor a dogwood.

I suspect you have found a common invasive exotic species, one of the pestiferous Buckthorn species - Rhamnus (syn. Frangula) sp.

This genus often displays subopposite arrangement, and typically has small spines at the tips of growth as it ages.

Nice Cliffbreak ferns in that last photo. Smiling

They are by far the most interesting things in your pics: not many plants grow in pure rock!
