This tree has been in my backyard since we moved in 10 years ago. I've asked multiple people what kind of tree it was but no one seems to know. Can anyone here identify this tree? and are these berries safe to eat?

Here are some pics

For some reason all of your links seem to go to gmail sign in. I'm totally into trees and my buddy owns a well run landscaping firm and tends to be able to identify just about any exotic tree I've ever quized him on or shown him. He's usually not stumped and when he is he can at least tell you what genus the tree is in and where to look for the specific tree or cultivar. I will run the photos past him and get his take.

So I totally want to see those links!

The image links go to some google thing, so can't see pics.
It would be helpful if you had photos of a leaf, if you didn't include that, and what region you live in, and does it drop leaves in the winter, deciduous or not.

it would be more convenient for me and rest of ATS if you use the upload function under tools
The upload function works fine with firefox browser.

Looking forward to seeing your tree

Would really love to help you identify the tree but as the others have said it goes to a 404'd gmail page.


this second line blows your mind.

You can upload them here or on tinypic.com. Just choose message board size there and copy the forum link. Come back here and paste it into the comment box.

Lingonberry I am thinking (also big into trees here) If it is (I am a novice so I'd do more research But if it is yes you can eat them and they're very delicious!

Sorry, the pics are too small and there is nothing to relate the size of the fruit and leaves to.

What state do you live in? as that will help to determine the climate zone.

Lingonberry is a low growing shrub...we have them here.


Vaccinium vitis-idaea (lingonberry or cowberry) is a short evergreen shrub in the heath family that bears edible sour, slightly sweet, slightly bitter fruit, native to boreal forest and Arctic tundra throughout the Northern Hemisphere from Eurasia to North America. In the past it was seldom cultivated, but fruit was commonly collected in the wild. Recently, commercial cultivation has begun in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.[1]

Flower and fruit appear similar to a Lychee, but the serrated leaves seem out of place.

your leafs look similar, you can look at all the pictures here and should find it as I believe it is a berry of the pacific northwest.

These are all eatable!

That is what I thought at first as well, that it was a lychee tree, but on second look I have never seen one with serrated leaves.
