Thank you for your question about identification of your trees. There are several ways you can achieve plant identification. First, you can take pictures of your trees (assuming there aren't dozens!) and send them as an attachment to an Ask an Expert question. It is helpful if you wait until the leaves and/or fruit/berries are out, since photos of tree trunks without leaves is often a puzzle.
Second, you can consult this website which has an identification tool using the leaf or fruit of the tree. Finally, you can contact your county Extension office at
