So this is an ID request from a friend of a friend of a friend...

Here's what I know:
This is a smaller ornamental tree (described as crabapple-sized), not a large shade tree that came down in Hurricane Sandy (eastern US, probably Mid-Atlantic States). Leaf measures (very approximately) 4" by 2.5". They think it had flowers. Habit-wise it is described as having a pretty broad branch spread with a gnarled appearance, trunk not straight. Was unsure about thorns or bark.

My best guess at the moment is one of the hawthorns, but I'm not sure. Hopefully someone here will have a better idea than I do...

ETA: Just got more info on the tree. The flowers were pink, it had berries, and rough bark.

Are there crabapples with leaves like this?
