I recently moved and found five of these growing in my new backyard maybe seven to ten feet apart. Most of them are between six and seven feet tall. Any idea what they are?

    I can’t tell if I’m seeing a seed pod at the top of the picture.

    If that’s a seed pod, and you had yellow blooms, this might be rattle-box, which I wouldn’t expect in PA.

    Maybe an indigo?

    Otherwise, check types of locust.

    Actually, that’s not a seed pod. It’s my neighbor’s tube light creeping over the top of the fence. The images I’ve found of indigos and locusts seem right. I suppose we’ll see if/when it blooms.
