Can anyone help me ID this tree? I am looking for a good front yard tree and see this planted a lot locally. Thanks:)

Looks like a jacaranda. Do you know what color the flowers are?

Well, I have not seen any flowers yet, which I know is not helpful. I would feel pretty silly if it's a Jacaranda since I have one in my front yard:) The leaves on this one look bigger and rounder....

It looks like Thornless Honey Locust Gleditsia triacanthos 'inermis'. I'm having a rough time with the scale, I suppose it could be a Tipu Tree Tipuana tipu, but the yellow highlights tell against that.

I'm pretty certain it's a Tipuanu tipu, as Ryan stated above.

Wonderful, thank you all! I checked out images of the Tipuanu tipu and I am sure that must be it.

I love the blossoms of the Jacaranda! Until they drop all over the driveway.... But they sure are pretty!! That looks like a very nice landscape tree!
