It's not exactly a tree, more of a large shrub - it is a Camellia, possibly Camellia williamsii of some variety, not sure which, though I've come across this one myself in a garden, never was able to pin down precisely which variety it was other than it probably being what's known as a 'rose double' type. The pointed petals and neat shape of the flowers are not that common in camellia - some information and varieties shown here https://gardenerspath.com/plants/ornamentals/best-camellia-varieties/
