There are a thousand varieties of Hawthorn tree. They are a member of the rose family and grow wild in the Northwest. The limbs sport a lengthy thorn and they are not easy to hold without getting pricked. Birds are drawn to the trees for nest making because of their lush canopy.

Most likely they grew on their own and were not planted by a person.
