Definitely looks like the catalpa that grow here. In the spring is it covered with drooping white flowers? They are so pretty. If so, that is what it is.

It is definately a Catalpa' The bean pods are full of future trees' In the spring the cluster of flowers sit atop the leaves. They resemble tiny orchids,and are very fragrant' It can reach 40-50ft tall or in some cases much taller' Sis'

Yes, it looks like catalpa to me also. I love the way the orchid like flowers smell.
