I don't think this is a magnolia tree. Is the underside of the leaf a light tan brownish color? It might be some sort of Rhodadenron.

eball,
This is one of the Japanese varieties of ornamental magnolia's.
I can guarantee that this is not a rhodie!

Think Green,
Although that may be true. I asked my boss and he said he wasn't sure about the type of tree this actually is. He said if it is a magnolia the leaves would be shiney and the pictures do not look shiney. I may be wrong. I'm just saying what the boss told me

Your boss and you are both wrong.

Look at the leaves, the bark, etc.

It's a magnolia, although I highly doubt a star magnolia.

It is a magnilia for sure, but I am unsure of what type...... From what I have looked into it may well be a star magnolia.
