      Hmm!
      Not sure that leaf shape fit with Cercis canadensis Hearts of Gold.
      Cercis have alternate leaves.


      Cercis canadensis 'Hearts of Gold' leaf - Google Search:

      Mystery tree looks to have opposite leaves.

      Is the tree normally green ...might this be a golden colour that it has gone in the autumn.
      Leaf shape reminds me of Populus sp.

        Looks like a sad excuse for a Catalpa to me, possibly the yellow version.
        But they are all pretty yellow at this time of the year

                Lilac (Syringa) has opposite leaves of that shape that are now turning yellow, plus stems exactly like those in the image.

                  If it is a Catalpa the leaves will have a slightly unpleasant smell.
                  Once heard it described as the kind of smell you get from old trainers.:snorky:
