Your “living hardwood” is unlikely to stay that way.

It is a Mountain ash tree, with red berries and compound leaves. Also found this growing at Adventist Hospital in Portland. It frequently fruits twice a year, and can be prolific, taking over an otherwise healthy tree is 3-5 years. It typically starts somewhere in the upper tree canopy, and works its way downward, especially following stress lines (as from windstorm damage, no easily seen).
