    1. Looks like Catalpa bignonioides.
    2. Looks like Albizia. Possibly A. julibrissin.

    the bean tree looks like a young Catalpa, the second looks like Albizzia foliage but the legume like seed pods dont fit for that.

    edit: I havent noticed one with seed pods up here in the PNW, guess you can learn something every day. :)

    Sorry for delay in thanking all of you for identifying my trees - am looking forward to Spring when I can see the flowers.
    Thanks.

    They're both summer-flowering, rather than spring-flowering, so you'll have to wait a bit longer!
