Why Rowan / Mountain Ash?

What evidence do we have this is Sorbus aucuparia and not another member of the genus Sorbus? After all it is in an urban environment.

habitat

The habitat is a birch woodland (given as heathland in the observation), rather than a strictly urban environment. I think that we can infer that this is a self-set tree, and self-set specimens of other species are very rarely encountered.
