Hello!

It looks like you have a cherry tree (photo on the left)! It is likely a variety of a sour cherry. Here is more information on cherry trees:

I can't see the leaves/fruit well in enough in the second photo (on the right). It is possible it is also a cherry, but could be a crabapple. Can you send a photo that shows the leaves and fruit a little more clearly?

Something to keep in mind: cherries are edible, but be sure the tree hasn't been compromised (pesticides applied, etc.) before consuming the fruit.

Thanks for submitting your question!
