Anyone have a clue?? This tree has cherry like bark with prominent lenticels. The new growth is a pinkish, reddish color and their are some nectar glands on the leaf petioles.
I have to know what this is ... I've scoured Dirr and internet and attempted to use a key with no luck. Thanks, Brett
Maybe it's balsam poplar (Populus balsamifera)? The leaves look similar, balsam poplar does have reddish twigs, and the bark could be similar to what you're describing. I think more information is needed to be able to make an I.D. (such as where you're located, the size and habit of the tree, possibly more photos, etc.)
The petiole glands definitely place this plant firmly in the genus Prunus, but it can be very difficult to get further than that without using an identification key (which I would recommend at this point). It's likely a seedling form of the sweet cherry.
