Can anyone identify this tree?

This tree gets tiny white flowers on it in the spring. Does anyone recognize it? It's a bit mis-shapened because there were 3 other trees planted in the same spot and we had to cut them out to get this one in the clear. I think it's beautiful but have no idea what it is.

Could it be possible for you to take a very close picture to look at your trees leaves?

I'll have to take a closeup this weekend. That tree isn't on my property but on a friends. I'll upload when I get it. Thanks.

That sort of looks like the Stag Bush, 'viburnum prunifolium' from the honeysuckle family.
They are often a shrub sometimes a small bushy tree, short crooked trunk and stout spreading branches. Found in the undergrowth of forest area. From Connecticut to Georgia going westward to Kansas.
