This tree is on Douglas Road in Alpharetta (Johns Creek side). I have tried to identify it on line and with Simon and Schuster Guide to Trees. The closest I can come is Empress Tree (Scrophulariacese) native to China
We moved here ten years ago and I have questioned the identity of this tree every spring. For a long time I thought it was a locust. There are others in the area so I”m sure it isn’t rare. Just not known to me.
I enjoy your column in AJC. Thanks for your help.
