Hi Everyone!

I have this tree in my front yard, with my three cherry trees and my apricot tree. I do not know what this one is. I thought it was dead, but is is alive with hundreds of flower buds. Not sure if its a fruit tree or not. Can someone help?

Maybe Malus crabapple

Its too early for apples (and there aren't a lot that bloom pink). Its another prunus. Maybe a peach or nectarine.

If the leaves are red then I believe it is Prunus cerasifera nigra...common name cherry plum.
It bears tiny round cherry size fruits.

Hi there!

SOLVED!!!! @Silvrsurfer is correct. the leaves are red, and I compared pictures. This is a cherry plum!

I have fond memories of cherry plums. I had a massive one in front of a house I lived in 17 years ago. It was a good tree! I think I will enjoy this one!
