Snow in May?

Walking over the tip and into the woods the other day I could have sworn we'd had a slight scattering of snow.
But it was only winged seeds. Any idea what this tree is?
The closest I could find on google was a willow tree (but not weeping obviously). But Husband pooh-poohed that idea - without coming up with anything better I should add.

If it isn't snow, then it must be what we call cottonwood. They're all over the trails where I take Tegan but they've finished their "shedding" now.

Yes, that was another possibility but - I can't remember why I ruled it out!

I think cottonwood leaves are a different shape. That was my first idea, too. I must go take a look.
