What kind of tree is this? It's at least 80 years old. It's sort of famous. It was the Juicy Fruit Gum tree in the Juicy Fruit Gum commercial back in the 70's. Can somebody ID this tree? Thanks !!

Sorry I don't recognise the species. the bark is lovely reminds me of our London plane trees. So it might be one of the American Plane trees.

How about 'The Locust Tree,or False Acacia, Robinia pseudoacacia.

It's very similar to The Locust Tree except no thorns. I was curious because I saw that old TV Commercial again. Thank You!
