Can anyone help me ID this tree? I think the first couple photos are particularly distinct with the buds. Thanks for any help.

I'm not really sure but I wonder if it could be Dogwood? Check our database page for photo comparisons:
Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida)

Hopefully someone will be along shortly and recognize it to be able to give you an exact ID.

Definitely looks like a Cornus. It has the stem characteristics of Cornus florida. Probably a cultivar. I've never seen Cornus fruit do that before.

It is a Dogwood and it is Cornus florida. The flowers weren't pollinated completely so the seeds are not developing properly.

Thanks so very much for the ID and info! So since it's not completely pollinated I assume it might not flower much?

Those are the seeds - they have nothing to do with how many flowers you will get next year but have everything to do with how many pollinators you had when it bloomed last spring.
