I have this tree in my garden and for the first time there are no leaves on the left y (please see attachments) can you help me identify it, I have been using the interactive guide but am getting a bit lost. Many thanks
The tree is one of the Black Poplar family, although the exact one I'm not sure of. The 'Black Poplars' are tricky due to their cultivars and hybrids. They include the Wild Black Poplar (Populus nigra ssp. betulifolia), Black Poplar cultivars e.g. Lombardy Poplar, Afgan Poplar, Plantier's Poplar and others, and the hybrids Populus x canadensis, of which there are a few.
I would suggest seeing if your local council has a Tree Officer who can advise.
Hope this helps.
