    Need better view of twigs, leaves and flowers of the Prunus. The other is a red elderberry.

    Thank you. And sorry, the video and pictures are the best detail I have. What detail would I have to show to be able to distinguish?

    Didn't look at the video, videos are a good way to get malware.

    I haven't heard of it happening with Youtube, but that's okay. I'm just replying to bump the thread...

    Okay, I did some screen captures which I don't know will elaborate more than the pictures in the original post.

    Any idea whether this would be pin cherry or bitter cherry?

    The flowers of the cherry tree do not look like bitter cherry flowers. They look a bit like pin cherry flowers, but Squamish is out of their normal range. If they are growing anywhere near civilization, the trees are most likely seedling sweet cherries, which are very common in this area.
