there is something not right about this, bark is wrong and persistent sepals are wrong, wondering if its an ornamental crab apple or juneberry

Thanks Tim

It is on the Ashdown Forest golf course, but I believe they're normally fairly careful about what gets planted.

I realise my tree identification needs some attention...

I've never seen an Amelanchier anywhere near that size, but Wikipedia tells me that some species can reach 20m.

I believe that the suckering habit would be a point in favour of Amelanchier.

I presume that we can exclude Mespilus germanica on the grounds of the long pedicels and number of fruits in the inflorescence.

I'll now have to compare it with what I know *is* a wild cherry on a nearby farm!
