    Tree ID needed in WA state

    Hi, I have a tree I can't identify. It's my neighbor's tree, and we were looking at it today - it needs to be pruned but I wanted to find out what kind of tree it is BEFORE I go chopping off the unruly branches.

    I have taken off a small twig and taken a few pictures of it, so I'm hoping that someone will be able to let me know what this is.

    A few details before I post the message (and hopefully the pictures)...

    -We live in Eastern WA where the wind is terrible at times so the tree is leaning to one side. I'm hoping we can help them stake it and pull it up a bit so it's growing more straight. But the trunk is really curved - as if it's a naturally-occurring thing (the wind may not really be a factor?)

    -The branches are very curvy, but this may just be because it's never been pruned.

    -The flowers that are budding look to be a dark pink color but as I said, they haven't actually bloomed out yet.

    Please let me know if you have further questions for me - I would appreciate it!

    If you want a picture of the tree itself, I can take a picture of it tomorrow and post it.

    Thanks a lot, to whoever can answer me!

    RE: Tree ID needed in WA state

    Not sure, but it looks like it might be hawthorne (Crataegus sp.). I'm always reluctant to try to identify hawthorne to species, because there are many, with a variety of leaf shapes and other features, and they hybridize readily.

    If I'm right, it is normal for hawthornes to have a sprawling or even shrubby form, rather than a straight trunk.

    Yes, it is a type of Hawthorn because I can tell by the fruit. There are more than 100 diffrent native Hawthorns in America and they are most abundant in the eastern U.S.
