      Hi @Berberis Artista ,

      It looks like my favourite tree..... Catalpa ( common name Indian Bean Tree ). They do grow large, perhaps 20/30" and need a lot of water. We have them in our town growing along the river banks ( they're only just coming into bud but I"ll take some photos when they're out ).

        Hi @Berberis Artista yes, as @KFF says it is the golden catalpa by the colour of the leaves (catalpa bignonoides aurea I think). Flowering early - mine is nowhere near yet!
