2017 02 18 - Cherry Tree?

As you walk through the woods in Castle Ashby Gardens you come across a lake with a lovely bridge over it. I have taken a shot of this tree before, as I love the colour of the trunk, and I think someone kindly identified the tree as some kind of cherry but sadly I cannot find the shot with the information. ID gratefully received if anyone has any ideas.

It is vivid and silky and lovely. No idea for sure though it kind of resembles Tibetan cherry tree bark, google image that.

Cool color, tree

Pam, this looks like it belongs in Disneyland or Hogwarts. A natural tree with such extraordinary bands of color defies our imagination, we automatically think "fiction". It's lovely.

Very unusual markings on that wonderful tree. I have no idea of what it might be, never seen anything like it. Great image.

With a scene this beautiful at this time of year, I can only wonder at how gorgeous it will continue to become as as everything leafs out! Tree type? I have no idea, but will be interested to follow this discussion. (Though I have NO IDEA what I'd do with it, I'd loe to have a yard of satin fabric in that rich claret/cherry shade!)

Yes it is a birch bark cherry tree, I recognise the bark, beautiful, we tried to grow one in our front garden but failed miserably. It was to expensive to try again!! Fav
