    I took these images from screenshots of a video I took. I didn't have intentions of looking into the identification of these, but now I'd like to figure it out. I don't have pictures of the bark or the trees as a whole. Any help appreciated. These were filmed at an elevation of 1000-1500 feet. Thank you in advance! Tant 1.jpg Tant 2.jpg Tant 3.jpg

    1. Possibly a member of Prunus subg. Padus
    2. A pine, of some common species of your region, most possible
    3. An Amelanchier maybe

    It could help for flowers to know the date they were filmed.
    The first one has more the inflorescence shape of Prunus emarginata, bitter cherry.

    Thanks for the reply Wendy. This was pretty recent. Maybe 2 weeks ago.

    The pine could be P. contorta.
    The Amelanchier is possibly A. alnifolia.

    I think that is most likely. When I've seen them before, they had much more spindly petals - but maybe that was just earlier in their blooming?
