What Tree is This?
Can anyone help me out with identifying this tree? It came down as part of our Someday Orchard clearing project. It was only then that we noticed the top was filled with black berries that grew out of little leaf tufts- CLICK TO ENLARGE PHOTO. Our university extension thought it might be a wooly buckthorn except there are no thorns, so that's out. I can't find another, although there's bound to be somewhere in these woods.
Any ideas? The wood is really hard, some sparks came out when he used the chainsaw- nothing metal inside, just very hard wood.
