Yeah, I think I've mixed Sorbus domestica with some other specie. Apparently there are hundreds of them and wild growing ones seem to be somewhat available. I think trees that I've seen were Sorbus aucuparia - a small tree with small fruits, and they look like a shrub, maybe because they're trimmed all the time? The biggest tree had a small trunk and it was planted a few generations back, any other tree, like ash, oak or a beech would be much bigger I presume.
