On a walk this afternoon I came across a small tree (about 12ft or more - not fully grown?) which had the most amazing canary yellow ferny type leaves. It was such a sight that I stopped in my tracks. Given that there is no photo does anyone know what it might be? If the answer is no I might be able to find time to photograph it tomorrow.



I learned this just a few days ago from Sollada's question on tree idintification. Look at Robinia frisia.

Or Gleditsia triacanthos 'Sunburst'. :)

Hi, you could also look at Ginko biloba, what we really need is a photo, Derek.

Definitely not a Ginko, Derek, as I know what they look like and the leaf was totally different. I don't think it's a Robinia either, Stera, but a Sambucus Racemosa. I have the Nigra Purpurea variety so when I saw this tree I didn't recognise it. Now I want one! If only I had the space.

Perhaps its Sutherland Gold then. Very attractive (and a lot smaller than a Robinia...)

How do I say thanks?
