ETA: Sorry, my camera sucks...





And upon closer inspection of the surrounding area...



ETA: I think the consensus is Northern Catalpa. USMC6177 wins!

That's the mystery tree on the grassy knoll by Dealey Plaza in Dallas.

The image is famous. I see you blacked out the part containing the other gunman.

The bark is that of an Elm, however I can't tell which kind due to the poor quality of the pictures (especially the leaves)

Tag because I have the same tree in my back yard. It has long seed pods that look like bean pods and blooms with a white flower in the early summer. I knew what it was once but I brain fart now

Then it would be a fruitless mulberry.

I'll get better pics later today. The leaves have no serrations.

Previous poster threw me for a loop. Seed pods?

Hang on, I'll figure it out. I competed in Forestry for 5 years.

This a recent find or have you watched this for a while? Does it have a white blossum? Bark is really coarse? Wide heart shaped leaves? The pods would have dropped by now

Well, I've just seen this particular tree for a couple weeks. I'm told it does have small white blossoms in the spring, but also was told it doesn't drop any fruit or pods (I specifically asked), and I couldn't find any stray pods hiding along the fence or in the bushes. Other than that, sounds about right.

ETA: Except the leaves aren't really heart-shaped, but they are fairly big, about 5" across, and 8-9" long.

Before other pics, I'm going to guess it's a Dogwood.

Leaves are a bit narrow though, but the flowers = fruit at some point almost always...so it'd have berries.

I'm miffed OP. Standing by for more pics.

You are right I focused on the leaves and the branch structure. The trunk bark is not coarse enough to be Catalpa.

I withdraw my comment

Update with more sub-par pics in OP.

ETA: I think I'm leaning toward Northern Catalpa, but I'm not sure if the bark is rough enough. It is rather coarse, though. What say the hive?

I'll go with Basswood also.

I had one on campus that was half dead from putting a parking lot next to it. Then destroyed half its roots. I had to water the fuck out of it. Those leaves are huge.

Don't think it's basswood, as the leaves are not serrated. Different venous pattern, too.

I planted one in my front yard 2 years ago...Northern Catalpa - Bignoniaceae - Catalpa Speciosa

People call the seed pods *indian cigars*.

Cue racist .gif...

When they lose their leaves, they look like the stereotypical *haunted house* tree.

It is a Catalpa. Sometimes called Indian Cigar Tree. I have 2 in my yard.
