What tree is this?

A friend has sent me a couple of pictures of a tree in his garden. He asked if I know what tree it is. He described the leaves as silvery green.

My knowledge of trees is almost zero, so I wondered if there is a tree expert on the forum who might know.

(Apologies for the rather poor quality of the pictures).

a whitebeam.

If it is, it will have white flowers on it this month, and red berries in autumn.

FE: thanks for your reply; I have e-mailed my friend to ask him if it has flowers and berries.

All humans have binocular vision.

Just heard back from my friend.

The tree does have spring blossom, but NO red berries in the autumn. This probably rules out a Whitebeam.

Definitely a whitebeam (Sorbus Aria). I have two in my garden and they certainly have small flowers in the Spring but small berries only occasionally in the Autumn.

FE is right again!
