Questions, corrections and comments to Jeff Finger.

Any help identifying the mystery trees would be greatly appreciated.

Black Locust

For a while I thought this was a Brazilian Rosewood (Tipuana Tipu) פרפרניים?. The leaves and bark are about right, but the flowers are the wrong color!

After looking at Invasive Plants of the US, the leaves ("Odd-pinnate compound leaves with short petioluled leaflets"), bark, and especially the flowers match the Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.).
