There is a small group of these trees near my house. They must be about 7 metres tall, and are a bit straggly but this may be because they are amongst other trees so short of light. They are still covered with healthy leaves so I assume they are evergreen. The leaves are about 8cm long and smooth to the touch, but I would not call them glossy or leathery. Perhaps the texture of cherry leaves. Underneath the the veins are tinged red and the leaf is paler. I don't remember seeing obvious fruit in the autumn, I'm not sure about flowers.
I am trying to identify 50 different trees in the vicinity of where I live and I'm getting stuck at around 35, so help with this one would be great. Thank you.
Thank you. The leaves do indeed look like some cotoneaster leaves. I don't think I had thought of it because I don't remember any berries. Maybe there just weren't many and I missed them because they were high up. I will look on the ground as you suggest, and more carefully next autumn.
