    Hi guys. I wanted to figure what trees grow nearby. This I thought is a European beech but then I found the actual European beech. So what tree is it? Pics below.

    Can you post some more pictures-whole tree,bark,buds,flower,fruit etc.? Also your ID says Poland-what typed of land does it grow on-sandy,loam,well drained,not well drained,sunny ,shade?? It would help to ID it better.

    They say we live on Silesian highland. About 400 meters above sea level. I'll add more pictures. The bark of that tree is very coarse and I'll try to photo the flower later

    Prunus but not virginiana. Most likely Prunus serotina (Czeremcha amerykaƄska) which in Poland is introduced and invasive.

    Agree with Sundrop, invasive Prunus serotina.
