Does anyone recognize this tree from my not so great photos? Location: San Diego, California; photos taken early January 2015:

Although I cant see clear of the seed pod, nor the details of leaves, but that reminds me of Chinese flametree (Koelreuteria bipinnata)

Tofi, Thank You!

I kept thinking that it reminded me of a Rain Tree. Here in Florida we have both the Golden Rain Tree (Koelreuteria elegans) and Golden Rain Tree (Koelreuteria paniculata) but I didn't know of K. bipinnata and it does indeed grow in San Diego, Ca. where the photos were taken.

Thanks again!

Omg, my mother has a "stray" tree in a spot of the garden, had no idea what it was until now! I googled what you mentioned and it says it is used as Street Tree, it is a fast grower, but it is also considered a weed. I've seen it in other streets here, but small ones. I'll get rid of it, it reaches in such height it will shade the places I only have to plant to the soil!
In some Native languages the term for plants translates to "those who take care of us."
