Any help appreciated.
It's in my new garden in Stirlingshire, Scotland, and is approx 6m tall.
I'm aware that it's a compound pinnate leaf (paired - 2-8 - with a single one at the top) but fail to get to a tree beyond that, given the leaf shape and lack of teeth. The house has been a farmhouse for over 200 years so I had originally thought it'd be a walnut but I think not.
Why not a walnut?
To me, it fits English walnut, Juglans regia.
The presence of a terminal leaflet (amongst other factors) rules out black walnt, Juglans nigra.
The untoothed edges to the leaflets is OK
The number of leaflets rules out butternut.
The character of the twigs fits English walnut.
Thanks Mike. I tried a couple of sites I'd found on google and neither took me to that tree. I either read them incorrectly or they were incorrect in some way. Trouble is, once you think it isn't what you thought it was, it's difficult to do a u turn. If I'd waited a few months it'd probably been obvious anyway.
