I have two trees on the property we just bought this year that haven't been pruned in 12 years. It obviously wasn't baring fruit. My neighbors both said it used to bare fruit but neither could remember what type of fruit. I believe they are plum trees. What do y'all think?
Thanks for your input and help everyone!
The first one looks a lot like an old peach tree, the second might be either apple or pear.
Ultimately the best way to find out is to smell the wood at a freshly cut branch, most fruit tree woods smell like what they are.
My persimmon trees grow far more upright than the first tree and they don't multi trunk like the second tree. (some apples will multi trunk)
