I need to know what kind of tree this is... It has pink blooms early.

Could be a Saucer Magnolia, but need a photo of a bloom and better photo of leaves. Those are just out of focus. While you're at it photograph the more of the tree rather than just bark. Crepe Myrtles bloom much later, dogwoods have a rough bark. Not many more early bloomers other than fruit trees, but we need photos of blooms.

You'll have to copy and paste that link into the browser. It will not open as is.

Yeah, it looks sort of like a cherry based on the bark. I am not sure ornamental cherries grow in Georgia.
