    I have a Tree that is Big like 100 feet tall, Big Broad Leaves and Big White Flowers. In the Fall it has Big Pods that look like big Green Beans.

    Given your location, my guess would be a Catulpa tree.

    Could be either Catalpa or Easter Red Bud.

    There is also an Asian Species that is a common decorative species, but I don't remember what this one is (it has large, curled, woody seed pods).

    I don't think it's either...

    Here's a video I just made that has it in it... Of course with Camera in Hand I can't just take a pic of the one main thing I was after...

    Keep a check on the tree, there is a special moth or butterfly that will lay her eggs in it. Soon you will find big caterpillars in the tree, gooood fish bait!!

    I was pretty sure of the catalpa tree. I'm wild guessing the butterfly is a Baltimore Checkerspot, but a young one; it's very brightly colored.

    G3, I think it's a sphynx moth that uses the catalpa as one of its hosts. The adult moth looks a little like a hummingbird.

    From your description, I would guess Catalpa as well.
