I was looking for a Tree identification thread but couldn't find it.

This thread is for anyone. Don't worry about Hyjacking it.


As I was sitting on that bench in this picture I was overwhelmed by an awesome sweet fragrance! Almost like Lemon Plant blooms.

It came from this tree dropping little flowers. Anyone know what kind of tree this is?



Flowers



Bark



Leaves

I used this site to identify it. After answering a bunch of questions it gave me this.


https://www.arborday.org/trees/whattree/







So then I Googled White Ash fragrance and I came across an Ash tree called Fragrance Ash. I wonder if that's it. Did I find a Gem? I don't see these trees a lot.

Try this (ash trees): https://www.thespruce.com/twelve-spe...-trees-3269661

Or this (locust trees; my first thought was also locust): https://gardenerdy.com/locust-tree

Would have been easier if you had managed to find it in bloom, of course, to identify by the flowers before they fell and broke apart.

Not an ash. Those pix are of leguminous flowers.

I think it's a honey locust. Could be a black locust, but they don't smell as sweet and they have distinct thorns on their branches.

It's not a honey locust. The flowers are wrong.

How are they wrong? They're legume flowers. Locust is a legume. Ash is not.

Looks like locust bark and habit too.

Or do you mean that it is not a honey locust but some other leguminous tree?

Yeah, it's definitely a Black Locust. Apparently it's toxic. And not native to this area.
