    $\begingroup$ Could you provide more information? Are there veins on the leaves? If so, how do they run? How big are the leaves (perspective with the camera is hard to tell how big the tree is in general)? Are there flowers? Anything budding? The more information, the better someone can identify the tree for you $\endgroup$ May 26, 2017 at 6:39
  • $\begingroup$ The kind of leaf is typical of Fabaceae (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fabaceae). $\endgroup$

It looks like a Laburnum. Probably a Common Laburnum Laburnum anagyroides, also known as a Golden Chain Tree. It is from central and southern Europe.

The seeds are poisonous.
