We're in the process of welcoming sheep, thus setting up the fences, now inside on of the areas, there is a small tree. Never seen leafs like this before. I suspect this to be some sort of anomaly/disease ?. I identified 2 oddities : the branches are chorros-like and some leafs have small, vivid red appendices growing on them

  1. Could anybody identify the tree?
  2. are the branches and leafs 'normal' 3 is there any danger for the sheep? (toxicity) ?

Region : South-west France Size: About 2 meters

    $\begingroup$ Not sure about the tree identification. But regarding the oddity I had to think about galls $\endgroup$ – Arsak May 14 '20 at 10:58
  • $\begingroup$ Could you post it as an answer so I can accept your answer? it's indeed galls on a Ulmus minor. $\endgroup$ – Vincent Duprez May 15 '20 at 20:41
