I have a tree that I have no idea what it is. I have not seen it anywhere else.

During the spring it will bloom small white flower flakes which fall off within a week or so. It grows these green, marble size pellets that are hard, then in the fall they ripen to a brownish, soft fruit. I tasted one and it's sweet. The birds love them.

I originally thought it was a sassafras tree, but now I think it's some kind of cherry tree.

Pictures can be seen here;

Looks like Callery Pear. First to flower in spring and one of the last to lose leaves in fall... I have one right outside my bedroom window and I love waking up and seeing the blooms in March, knowing spring is on the way.

It's a flowering pear tree (Pyrus calleryana - Bradford Pear). Numerous were planted in the area for it's beautiful blooms and ability to withstand the climate, however, they snap easily from strong winds and lighting. After a storm, they are typically the trees you will see split in everyone's yard.
