Fast growing tree, yellow puffy flowers, tiny leaves, airy

thedrgreenJune 7, 2014

This tree sprouted in my yard last year and has grown 10 + feet since. It has very airy leaves and provides sparse shade. The flowers are yellow puffy balls and the seeds develop into long brown pods that break open easily to reveal small round brown seeds. Probably up to 15 seeds in a pod. I would really appreciate any info or names. Thanks!

Nothing I've seen in person but perhaps a yellow mimosa tree, Acacia dealbata?
