This UK garden tree has some kind of berries or seed pods but we can't find anything that matches it.

Tree with berries(?) in UK garden.

Whole tree

Leaf and berry

  • It looks a bit like an Amelanchier, but it is difficult to be sure. Can you give a picture of the berries that you mention?

  • What color were the flowers? And were they of an unusual form?

  • Are you able to add a picture of the whole tree, as well as another, clearer, better lit close up of the leaves and any berries - its quite difficult to see detail in the photo you've provided because of the light levels, which show dappled sun but is otherwise quite dark.

  • Hi @Stephen, welcome! Those look like underripe almonds, but again it's hard to be sure without clearer photos of the leaves and so on. If you get a chance to add some more snaps, remember you are encouraged to Edit your question to improve it as much as possible. Commented Jun 14, 2020 at 21:20

    The extra pictures rule out it being an Amelanchier.

Black walnut is my best guess which will stain your hands for days and days so get some rubber gloves.
