Trees for sandy soil in zone 6 Michigan

What flowering trees will do well in a slightly acidic (not sure the exact pH) sandy loam type soil over on the west coast of Michigan?? Thank you for your help.

The funny thing is that is pretty much right on, lots of folks would like that type of soil.

Plug in your hot buttons (ie require sandy soil tolerance) and it will give you some good suggestions.
