The fruits could be apples. Or not

The thing is, I expect that Dmitri would recognize an apple tree, so it probably isn't one. But the fruits look to me like apples. They are not shaped like pears. Likewise peaches. Too big to be crabapples.

The branches and bark do not resemble those of apples.

Could it be a wild plum tree?

I gave it a good try, if it's not that kind of tree.

It's winter. Those are not fruits of any kind.

It's hard to tell depth without 3D.

That leaves, well, leaves, then.

If those are leaves, there are a lot of trees that could have leaves like that. Could you wait for Summer and take another look?
