Can anyone tell me what kind of tree this is? I’m looking to have it taken down but I’m not sure what it is. I hope to have some of it milled too.

Never heard of a Pepperidge tree, only a Pepperidge Farm. Googling it looks similar to what you have.

Apparently black tupelo is also called a Pepperidge tree.

My first thought was also black gum. Leaves turn early in the fall and are a deep red.
