Notes:

I’m not sure how old this tree is but it’s about 20′ tall now. It has lots of thorns. It’s now Oct and it has red berries. My dad thought it was a honey or black locust but the description I found said it would have flat legume pods which this tree does not and it said nothing about red berries so I’m not sure.

    It’s a Hawthorne, or Crateagus. There are over 50 species that grow naturally in Georgia, so I would encourage you to Google it to narrow down which species you have. I have found that most hawthorns in the wild are under the canopy of tall trees and do not produce many berries. Your specimen, on the other hand, looks like it is in full sun and has an excellent crop of fruit.
