Can you help us choose a tree to plant (specs inside)?

We need to choose a tree to plant in Virginia to replace a dead and removed chestnut oak. Must be green (as opposed to something like a red Japanese Maple) and if it has blossoms or other salient features, they should be white. We prefer tall as opposed to wide and native is a plus. Due to the odor, Bradford pear is out. (We already have boxwoods.) We are currently considering dogwood, cherry and magnolia but are open to suggestion.
