They look to be Australian Bottle Trees. A larger photo would help or a close up of the leaves.

It's the same type of tree in both pics, the second set are newly planted in a new house and the first set are about three years old, and the only reason I know that is because I remember seeing the first set as young trees and that's what they looked like, also the young tree was newly planted this summer, I think it was in shock from the heat, hence why it was so droopy. The subdivision is Oasis at Canyon Trails the Centex homes in Goodyear. The trunk of the tree is an olive shade of green. Does anyone know how to make the thumbnails any larger? I took the photos with my iPhone, but can't upload to this site from it, so I emailed them to myself, saved to my computer and uploaded from there...I may just have to take a trip to moon valley with my iPhone.....lol

Olive green trunk and limbs indicate Australian Bottle Tree.

We're neighbors, that's where I live. I live on the west side of the subdivision (Lincoln St).

The green trunk is the giveaway-- I thought so from one of the pics, but the others didn't look like one. Bottle tree. Very popular for years here, messy in terms of leaf drop. We got rid of the one we had in Scottsdale, and were happy when our neighbors in the house I'm living in now got rid of theirs.

The Australian Bottle Tree, along with the Silk Oak, are horrid, messy things. We inherited both in our first (79-83) house, but never again.

After looking at all the pics online of the australian bottle tree- that is what it is! Thanks everyone. Was seriously considering one, but being very messy, not sure that is the way to go now! Thanks everyone for all the help.

Why do you say the bottle tree is messy ? Mine is 2 years old and has not even lost the leaves during last year cold winter. My palo verde and the willow accacia are messy.

Maybe you have something else than an Australian Bottle Tree or maybe it is a maturity thing. They drop leaves as well as woody seed pods like crazy,
