    Trees need identification

    Hello, I'm new to this forum. I saw these two beautiful trees on Moffatt Road in Richmond, however i wasn't able to identify them. Does anyone know what they are called? I'd love to know their names as I'm compiling a collection of cherry blossom photos, thanks!!

    Four pink perfection trees on Chatham St, Steveston, in the south of Richmond, have just started to bloom. Unfortunately, two of them are overtaken by the stalk wood and therefore showing more white flowers.

    Kanzan can be found everywhere in Richmond now. Quite a number of them around the community near 7640 Gilbert Road can be observed. On the Blundell Road side, a Winsor Garden Court are planted around with 20 more Kanzan as their tops cutting off. The flowers are pretty, though.

    Most of them can be purple-leaved plum, which starts to bloom now.
    The third one may be a cherry tree. Minoru park has many Akebono, which will bloom in the second week of April.

    The nine Pandora trees along Jones Road, west of Garden City Road, are full of blooms and bees on March 26, 2013. In contrast, the Pandora in Kensington-Cedar Cottage has barely begun.
