Help me identify this tree?

Now that I taking a good look at my yard I’m trying to identify all the plants and trees. I’m having a hard time identifying this tree in my front yard. This Arbor Day Foundation site says it is a black walnut (like I’d be so lucky), but I’ve never seen nuts on this tree. So, I don’t think it is one.

I have found some interesting websites for identifying trees for future research. They are:

  2. Thank you! I would love for it to be a black walnut. I actually could afford the space in my front yard for it to be one. And it would make sense since nothing but weeds wanted to grow under it. Its just that I’ve never seen any flowers, catkins, or nuts on it. P.S. I updated the post with a close up of the leaves and a better pic of the bark.
