    hi everybody, i am looking for the name of a tree that i just spotted here in my city. i want to know what it is so i can get one for myself. it has large spade shaped leaves. they are green but the veines are bright yellow. the branches have some very small black thorns. the owner of the tree did not know the name but did tell me that new trees could be planted by planting a branch.this tree is located in Brownsville, Texas] i have attatched some pictures of the tree and the leaves for help with the identification. i would appreciate any help, thank you. (this is my first time posting so hopefully i've done this right)
