Arbutus unedo Strawberry Tree. Sounds like a great tree to have.

Oh but they're so messy.

There is one of those at a local school.

We have Arbutus Menziesii all the way up here, and into BC, FWIW. I just had some milled.

I wasn't able to search Arbutus arbutus or Arbutus arbutus tree, fruitfully. Is there another name or link?

Likely a nursery tree shaped to look like something occupying the street/yard even soon after the plantation : mostly a broom stick with a bunch of twigs (by repetitive pruning or grafting?) at the top. In a very few years, it takes the aspect of a tree's caricature with trunk and limbs in a small scale. A tiny tree to dress the landscape, already "old-like" and at the human's size, but rigged with a weird shape and full of structural defects.

It sure does have a strange canopy. Even though it doesn’t look like natural growth I believe it to be just that. I’ve seen hundreds of these trees and they all look the same. They are from different areas and they are different ages as well. Unless, some nursery is producing these things on a large scale and have been doing so for a long time.
