Need ID for a small tree that puts out vines

Hello! First time poster here. We have a tree, about 8 feet tall (maybe ornamental?) that puts out vines instead of branches. They grow from the top and cascade down, then grow along the ground. It has big leaves that come from the vine. We have no idea what it is or how to prune it, and it's going crazy! Help?!

It has big leaves that come from the vine.

That does not sound like trumpet vine to me ....

Anyway, good chance you have two different plants mixed together. A picture would be essential.

Perhaps a weeping Mulberry?

Do all the branches start at the same sort of height and the trunk is straight and bare?

I was visualising a weeping tree too, deejaus. Maybe mulberry, maybe redbud. A picture is definitely needed.
