Keep it Steady
Its a common mistake.
I agree with Sorbus torminalis, the red berries must be a commercial variety. Having a check on flicker the leaves look correct.
Planted next to a Motorway so this tree must be a hybrid from a nursery dealing with major contractors. None of the Hawthorn / Sorbus / Cockspurthorn have a deep jagged edge as this leaf.
I agree but the leaf seems to be a hybrid type.
Closely related but this is a conker tree or horse chestnut.
I agree it is a Sweet Chestnut.
You have cracked it. A common British tree. Thanks SD
Close up of leaf is very distinctive with jagged edges.
I am familiar with mango the leaves are larger. The Mango at Kew has fruited for first time in in 20 years, but it was inside the Palm House. This tree is outside. I better get a close up of the leaves.
Yes I thought the same but they are tropical and would not survive a winter in the UK could it be a chestnut??
