Tree ID - Carolina Laurel Cherry.

we have one of these against the back fence. ours is about 15' high and 10" diameter. it's an attractive tree and is about to start blooming which should make it even nicer to look at, but i'm not too excited about having such a poisonous thing in my yard. now i know why it still has plenty of berries - too bad the darn squirrels won't go for it.

I have three carolina laurels in my backyard, all in a row. Two are doing great--but the third is not growing, leaves yellowing. All receive the same sun, watering, etc. Any ideas?

Thanks so much!
