Thank you very much, Dane! I will update the ID. Unfortunately the tree has been cut down because it was too close to the foundation of the home. I'm somewhat glad to hear that it was an invasive species that was cut down, not a native one. I will definitely smell the flowers next time I encounter this species, haha. ;-)

Hey J. It appears I have under-looked this specimen, and didn't think about the callery pear as an ID match at first. Now I'd agree with you and say its a Callery pear after all; good way to tell is to smell the flowers when they bloom this spring, my callery pear up here looks identical, and the flowers don't smell good at all- caution lol.
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner J.
