I found this tree in a front yard in Northeast Arkansas. Anyone recognize it?

I believe it's one of the redbuds -- those leguminous seed pods look right and the leaf shape is very familiar.  There are a few different ones though, and I couldn't begin to home in on which one.

I'm gonna second the guess of red bud. This one will be very easy to confirm next spring. They're great little trees.

yes I think possibly a Cercis too. There is a Cercis siliquastrum , Judas tree, at the plant nursery where I work that looks just like that, with last years pods still hanging inside it.

I was going to back up Annie with the Catalpa/Catawba - but the seed pods are too short. And after looking at the Cersis genus, that is much closer.

My first thoughts were redbud or catalpa too.

The leaf is not quite catalpa and maybe not big enough, but the seed pod is the clincher, IMO.  It's flat, looks like a legume.  Catalpa seed pod is long and skinny and round.  This time of year here in western Colorado, the seed pods on the catalpa tree are still green.  So I second the redbud idea
