    Hi Matthew,

    The photos this morning showed orange inner bark, suggesting Morus. But these evening photos look more like Prunus. Are these the same tree? Did you look under the tree for fallen leaves?

    Best wishes,

      Yes, same tree. Yes, the smoothness of the bark high up and on the smaller branches do have a very “cherry” look to them. No leaves to note.

      Massive bole. A tree with much character.
