This tree is in Ontario, Canada - picture taken yesterday. Would love one in my garden if I can figure out what it is. Thanks for any help!

The bark looks like Flowering Crabapple - Malus sp. - and the tree appears to have been limbed up for ease of mowing, which leads to an unusual habit that can defy ID efforts.

Agree with Calif_Sue: park the car, walk up to the tree, and take some good diagnostic photos. Then we can do a good job at assisting you with ID.

It IS a flowering crabapple! Became a bit more evident as spring progressed, and it helped to ask the owner of the tree in question. I wanted one for my front yard but am hearing stories of dealing with an underfoot mess.

Thanks everyone!
