For the longest time we thought this was a Catalpa Tree. However, when I searched through the field guide to confirm this, I changed my mind.
This tree is late flowering.
It has huge leaves. In the fall I collect them and use them as placemats.
|Notice how large they are next to the maple.|
We only have two in the neighborhood as far as I have noticed. They are on my corner with the maple tree sandwiched in between.
