    If it's a Chinese Elm then it would have flaking colorful bark like this:




    If not it is most likely a:
    Slippery Elm or American elm because of your location.
    What area of NJ is it located in?
    And more close up pictures of the leafs, buds, and maybe the bark would help also.

    From the bark picture, looks more like cherry to me. I'd almost guess Kwanzan Cherry, but the overall form looks a little too tall and widespreading to be a Kwanzan.

    It could look like cherry bark lenticels or I'm wondering if maybe they are warts instead. In which case I'd guess hackberry. Celtis occidentalis

    You were right nightrust, it is a Kwanzan cherry.

    Kwanzan Cherry is the showiest of all Japanese trees. It's most awesome feature is its bundles of large double pink blossoms. The blossoms on this tree last longer than those of other flowering cherries.
    Kwanzan cherry tree is in the United States, but are primarily found in Japan. This is one of the Washington basin cherry trees given to the United States by Japan years ago for planting at our nation?s capital.

    This tree blooms in mid to late April. Unlike other ornamental cherry trees, the leaves of the Kwanzan cherry begin to grow while the tree is still in bloom. It is also the hardiest ornamental cherry tree and its bark is somewhat glossy.
