Japanese quince with ?? (紅梅と不明の木)

Today I lopped the Japanese quince which is standing in the center of the lower tree.
It showy red flowers in early spring. But I don't know name of the lower tree.
This is the tree which my wife lopped.
But I didn't like what she did, so I did branch lopping again.
If she knows that, she must be saying " I never do anythings".
