Knowing where you are located might help narrow the search down. Also if the tree has any distinctive flowers, seed structures, or seasonal color changes. Just based off that picture, my first guess would be the Chinese Tallow tree.

But a random google image search also yields the Northern Catalpa which has distinctive features that would make it easy to identify or rule out.

This is located in North Central Mississippi. Just looking around, I believe it is a Chinese Tallow tree.

Chinese Tallow quite invasive and equally as hard to kill. Best to Pull roots and all hang to desiccate in the sun. It will TAKE OVER! Destroy Destroy destroy! lol. Beautiful leaves though aint it??
