Having trouble identifying this tree. Not sure if it is an ornamental/invasive/non-native ???

Small leaves, grey bark, barely fissured (thin) 40 feet tall? has large green seed pod - pear shaped, fleshy like an avocado, seeds like a milkweed and a sticky/oily/milky white substance inside pod. very weird. found in Apollo Beach area of Florida.

Here are some photobucket links to pictures of the tree and seed pods.

check lead tree, or Leucaena leucocephala images on line and see if that's it

Lead Tree seed pod descriptions sound more like an acacia vs the fruit shaped photo posed.
