Hello!

My parents recently moved into a new home in illinois. It has several trees in the yard without leaves. I'd like to try and identify one of them. Anyone help?

EDIT: Later posters I.D. this as a crab apple, and it looks like it is.
===========================================================

That is the invasive callery pear. Probably the cultivar 'Bradford'.

Reseeds everywhere. Makes good firewood and makes good wood chips for mulching.

Certainly not contesting any expertise, but as I read it describes thorns and upward growing limbs (torch shaped tree). I don't have either. Is it possibly a crabapple?
