It has these 'nuts' on it:

My camera is on repair so I can't post photos.
Here is additional information:
In the top center of the image you can see something reddish: it's a half-opened flower. It was half-opened when on the tree yesterday. Currently, there are very few flowers.
These trees - currently their height is about ten feet - have a conventional tree shape. Their leaves are oval, about an inch long, and currently red: bright red rather than burgundy or similar.

Reminds me of Clerodendrum trichotomum

I found what tree is it: crape myrtle "Dynamite"

Today I went back on the location to look for additional clues. Among other things, I noticed that on the wooden pole by the tree there is a tied tape, and on the tape there is the text: "LAGESTROEMIE DYNAMITE"

Back home, I duckduckgo-ed it :)
