Welcome!

When you say found, does that mean in the woods? At the nursery? In the neighbors lawn? Smiling

Could you update your personal info (the little blue man in the upper right corner) and let us know where this tree is located?

Looks like Paulownia tomentosa.
In some parts of USA it is classed as invasive.

The leaves can be enormous.

To my eyes, it looks more like some type of Catalpa.

Do the leaves radiate from the stem in opposite pairs or in whorls of three?
(I can't really tell for certain from the photo, but it looks like whorls of three.)

Here are a couple of entries with photos to compare, the leaf shape seems a good match.
Catalpa (Catalpa speciosa)
