An alternative way to identify this tree

The metel diindicates that the owner of the land on which that tree sits has had a list made of her/his trees. If you can find out who s/he is and ask her/him, s/he may let you have a copy of the list.

Such lists are helpful because they confirm what each tree is and allow you to study a particular tree and note things that differentiate it from other types of tree.

I have a list for the trees growing in the City of London Cemetery (they have over 100 different species - it's really an arboretum) and I find it invaluable.
