Ended up in NYC for a few months for work and decided to bring the dog. I let her out in the back yard this afternoon and when I came back she was grazing on these berries that had fallen from a tree on the back patio. Any idea what it is and if it is poisonous?

Baneberry, possibly?

Flowering Dogwood.

Dog should be ok but watch for reactions.

It would depend on the size of the leaves and whether they are directly across from each other or staggered. It sure looks like a Dogwood to me from the pictures. However, I could be wrong because the bark seems a little smooth. ID'ing from pictures is sometimes hard.

ETA* The berries in question look more like crab apple clusters now that I look at it more and cross reference from my tree ID book.

That is definitely not a dogwood. The leaves, bark and berries are different. I have also planted numerous dogwoods and that isn't one.

Golden raindrops Crabapple. Leaves look dogwood like, but you can tell by the bark and suckering growth that it is crab. Not poisonous in small quantities. would depend on size of dog and amount eaten. I have eaten some before, just very sour, nothing you would want to consume.

How big are crab apples? These are a little bigger than blueberries.

Crabapples, you can tell if they only roll sideways.

Looks like a crabapple tree to me. Had one in the front yard of parents' house, my brother and I used them as ammo for our slingshots when we were kids.

Why to my untrained eye it would appear to be a coffee tree bearing fruit -- high land Jamaican would be my best guess.

Crab apples are small. They are not apples as in eating type apples. It is an ornamental.

That tree is a variety of crab apples. There are many varieties as it is a hybrid and different varieties grow better in certain areas of the country.
