Hello, i was weeding and i found this. Seems like a shrubby thing that may be a tree.
Thanks
William

It looks like a walnut to me.

Maybe someone with more experience will know which one.

Don't know what it is, but don't think it's a walnut (or related).  The leaflets on the nut tree are directly opposite, in his pic they alternate.



You can see the veins differ too.

not walnut. original pic doesn't have pinnate leaves, but simple leaves in alternate spacing. looks kinda like a persimmon...but i don't know the trees in your area well at all, so it may be a number of things.

Could it be feijoa - Acca sellowiana?

I actually planted 2 of those a few years ago and just this week uncovered it. The other one flowered this year...

Mah... dont think itโ€™s feijoa. The leaves are different plus these are alternate and feijoa is not.
Hmm.

So you made a portal in time and started grabbing people. This tiny ad thinks that's rude:
