    we just yop them back every so often
    until they are just crapped out then remove them

    Thornless would also lean it away from black locust as most of them have thorns

    Looks like Locust to me also.
    My experience with them; I would suggest being careful if you climb in the tree. The braches don't have as much flex as other trees.

    Could possibly be Robinia. It's pretty ugly LOL I would trim it (right down to the ground) Does not look like it would have much "landscape" value.

    I think I'm in the right place, having trouble identifying this tree, I have only seen about a half dozen of these trees in an old part of town, and nowhere else, need to trim down, any help is awesome? View attachment 245
