Fidel,

   I am amazed this thread has been there this long without an answer or being moved. I would suggest re-posting this thread in the Tree, Plant and Wood ID category and maybe someone will pick up on it.

   As much detail as you can provide will be helpful. I sure don't recognize it and wonder if it is some kind of ornamental non-native tree or shrub. Are there others in the area? Does it have fruit, flower, nuts or beans that you have seen? That would be helpful in keying it out.

   Good luck.

Danny,

   I'd never have guessed it and I have lots of Black locust on my place. I guess the leaves looked bigger in the picture or something. I was thinking maybe a tropical plant like a breadfruit tree or a gourd tree or such.

Howard,

It may not be black locust, maybe an acacia, but it certainly looks to be in the pea family just like black locust.

You're correct. To my knowledge we don't have black locust but have plenty of acacia.
