Can someone tell me the names of these trees?
I think Hawthorn tree
No, it is a lime tree (and not the citrus type of lime), sometimes also called linden.
There are a few possible species; Tilia euchlora and Tilia oliveri seem close.
If you need a firmer ID, please tell me about the leaves:
- Is the underside silvery or grey (due to a fine pubescence)?
Or is there pubescence only on veins or in tufts in the vein axils?
If there is pubescence in such tufts, is it orange or buff?
- Is there pubescence on the petiole (leaf stem) and shoot?
Or is the shoot green and hairless, petiole nearly hairless?
- Are the leaf buds a shiny dark red?
Or some other colour?
- Also, it looks to be in a park setting; is that right?
