what is this!
Does anyone know what kind of tree this is? I was doing some yard work for my aunt and I saw this tree and asked her about it. She said she thinks it was a cherry tree because when she moved in last year the berries were red and the birds and squirrels loved them. There was a sucker coming out of the base and when I grabbed it to pull it I got stuck with thorns. I looked closer and each branch had these needle like curved thorns, kinda like rose bush thorns. I didn't think cherry trees had thorns? Also when I went out to the alley to mow there was the exact same branches,berries, and thorns growing in the alley. But these were more like bushes not a tree.
