I moved into my new house about a year ago, the first thing my Dad said is that I should cut this tree down. I left it standing and started doing research but never came to any conclusions on the species of tree. I like it, regardless I would like to leave it.
I attached some pictures if anyone from the community would like to help with Identifying the tree. It grows in southern west TN. It does have a lot of weeping characteristics.
I'd wait for an ID, then research how well it might be that close to the house. I used to have a tree book with all sorts of lists, and one was trees that behaved well close to houses -- but must have purged the book. I don't know what the tree is but it seems to be fairly narrow.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
Yes it is quite narrow. i looked up more pictures of the italian buckthorn. They don't qquuiiitteee fit the bill. Mainly this trees 'weeping' branches , and how it grows up but not really out.
But I do have to say the leaves are similar?
