    Hi! I am having trouble identifying this tree in my backyard in Phoenix, AZ. I have included pictures of the leaves, bark, and some berries it has been shedding. Thanks a lot in advance! IMG_20171015_100440.jpg

    I think the name of it had changed somewhere around the time I first learned it cause I remember seeing it regularly referenced in different ways, but it's a Ficus microcarpa or Ficus nitida or Ficus microcarpa nitida, don't know exactly how it's currently named but that'll get you in the ballpark. Pruned a bazillion of them when I worked in San Francisco.

    Great, thanks so much! My dog loves the "figs" this tree provides, good to know that they won't do him too much harm.
