Recent volunteer
Far northwestern California, considered PNW
rain 60-100 inches
Property surrounded by neighboring houses and was gardened at one time then left bare for years, so some cultivated plants do show up, or native possibly
Across roads on both side, creeks with heavily wooded Spruce, etc
Fast growing
Seems it will be evergreen
White specks on trunk

TIA......

That was my gut instinct...but you guys are so smart, I knew you would know it right away ! I'm so happy that there are so many people in the world smarter than myself...lol..

So I will move it and let it grow and hope that it has a thrilling new apple...

Green, want to thank you again for telling me a couple of years ago about Nan's site...I have a bunch of seeds coming from her in the next week or so...can't wait !

THANK YOU !

Thanks for the vote of confidence and thanks for mentioning Nan. I only asked for 2 types of seed from Nan this time. Maybe you could share the website and address for others who may want to get in on the action. I absolutely love Nan's site; she is an inspiration to gardeners. What she can accomplish in her zone amazes me. Sorry to say, she lost Group hug Lovey dubby one of her llamas recently, but life does go on.

Greene, you know, this last time she only mentioned Dunc and I wondered.....too sad....I'd told her to give love to the boys.....
This past year I had posted, looking for certain verbascum seeds, and a bit later keith2012 was looking for them also, got some and shared them with me...when he told me where he found them, it was from Nan's Etsy site...lol..

I also love knowing that if she can manage to grow something there, then I can grow it here also. The climate here is a constant surprise and adjustment for me....

Back to your tree for a moment... It may be a sucker off an old stump. Its growing pretty vigorously for a seedling.

It has grown very vigorously...very quickly. Since we moved in 4 years ago, I have been systematically digging out sod in forming the beds, removing a good 5-6 inches in the process and then digging deeper in planting and have not come across a stump there, but who's to say that there may not be a piece of something left down there?

In a foundation bed at the front of the house, there was a very old, almost wild type of rose, charming, but did not belong there, finally took it out....and there must have been a piece left, because it's come back...lol..I decided it's earned the right to stay there.

All of the sod that I've been digging has gone into one large hill and has now rotted down all of the grass roots and is excellent top soil. It's going into my shallow concrete block raised beds over on a paved area. Thankfully, I think I've just about finished with all of the 'digging of the sod'..

Ah...lenticels...what I call 'specks' on the trunk...lol..Yes, I thought that would be a defining characteristic......so, then Prunus is a possibility. Cherry would be good

I'm used to having grown avocados, oranges, lemons, sapotes, cherimoya, persimmons, etc...have not grown apples nor cherries, so either would be fun......

Thank You...so I have a fruit tree, maybe cherry rather than apple.

I have planted two Filberts here since they were given to me and a Meyer Lemon....I will need to see if I can squeeze in two persimmons since I miss them so much, though they may not do as well here. I was not really planning on planting fruit trees here since I am almost 71 years old and thought to be gone before they bore fruit...lol...

No thinking like that! You are never too old to start a new project.

That's what I said when I started digging out the sod...lol..The last 4 years has been all new project...I can't stop myself from doing it...and I have planted trees, thankfully 3 and 4 years ago so they have some growth now, but thinking that I will forego fruit trees...happy to be able to finally grow Maples...and Lilac....etc
