Topic tags/keywords: question

Can anyone help identify this tree? My dad said he thinks it might be some sort of wild apple tree. It located in southern Ohio on a piece of ground that was a cow pasture around 30+ years ago. The tree itself is roughly 8-10 foot tall. Below are some pictures of it.

Well since it’s setting just outside a food plot I’d prefer it be a fruit tree. Lol.

Probably wrong but it looks a little like the Russian olive trees we have growing wild in N.W. Kansas. The leaves resemble them a lot. They are thick in some pastures and draws here. Just my opinion !!!

I looked up the Russian olive tree and the leaves looks almost exactly the same. Ill have to check out the bark more closely to see if they match.
I did look it up and that tree grows in my neck of the woods and is considered an invasive species
