I have this tree with tiny flowers that honeybees love! I would like to find out what it is so I can plant more of them. Any help would be appreciated!

It reminds me so much of our native Frangula purshiana (Cascara) including the bloom, pronounced venation on the leaves, etc. I'd suspect you have something closely related.

Compare with Rhamnus caroliniana - which probably has a rename by now...yes indeed.

Frangula caroliniana...and the images match yours pretty well.

Thanks so much!! The Rhamnus caroliniana does appear to be what this tree is. Now I can get more for my bees!!
