What Kind of Tree?

I have some pictures of a tree that I'd like to put in my back yard, but don't know what it is ...and I don't know how to post a picture that I took with my camera. Can you help me, please? Thanks!

It looks to be a cherry tree. Did it fruit this year? Do you have another one close by? You should.

It's not a cherry. No fruit.

I was going to say "mountain ash".

Google image it and see what you think. There are several varieties.

I think that you're in the right 'family' ...I think it's a relative of the ash, but it doesn't grow berries like the ash ...I think we're getting close! Thanks.

Could be something besides a cherry, but bear in mind cherries, or any fruit for that matter will need another tree to "mate" with in order to bear fruit. I am going by the bark and leaf configurations. I have 4 in my front yard. They bear, but we don't get any......birds are fast little critters

I don't have this tree yet in my yard, but a street over, there are several that the county planted. I know that they aren't cherry trees ...really! They've been there for 2 1/2 years, and no cherries.

From the research that I've done, I've discovered that the tree resembles the leaves, bark and shape of the Japanese ZelkovaLatin: Zelkova serrata. I'm going to call the city on Monday and see if they can let me know for sure. Thanks for your input.

Other than the bark, I would have bet white ash. Interesting.
