From far this looks like a cherry tree but the flowers seem to be more complex?
What species are we looking at?

It is a cherry tree. The defining characteristic is the split flower petal tips - a very cherry sort of thing. All we need now is a photo of the bark.

Need an expert in Prunus...cherries to say which sp/cultivar you have.
Leaves come into the calculation as well.
Cherry flowers can be simple with just 5 petals or semi double to double.
Petals can be white, pale pink , deep pink....tiny and huge.
