    My client is purchasing a house in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with this tree in the garden. Can you please let me know what type it is?

    Not a good garden tree, unfortunately - aggressive deep rooting which can damage foundations if the house is built on shrinkable clay soil, and also (when older) a tendency to drop large branches. Have it examined for safety by a certified arboricultural consultant familiar with the local conditions.
