I'm not sure but it looks like this might be a camphor tree. A quick and easy method of identifying camphor is by crushing the leaves. This will release oils and the scent of camphor. If that smells like your rescued tree it might be a good idea to read up on it before saving it. Camphor trees have small back berries that birds really love and leave their "markings" all over everything near the trees. This also means the trees multiply very quickly and may be difficult to manage.
Here is a photo of camphor leaves and a care site - if this happens to be your tree.

I have 6 little trees growing in my front lawn, even though we have not had rain in Raleigh NC in quite some time, they are still nice and green. I plan to offer local persons the opportunity to come and dig them up for free. Can any one tell me what these little trees are?
The look like a pine tree and it seems they were started from seeds from another tree in the area. A lot of times trees like this will start to grow when a pine cone is dropped or a bird moves the seeds from one place to another.
Pinus Echinata- Shortleaf Pine- Has a variable form,sometimes straight,crooked,and irregular crown. This tree grows a average height 65-100 ft. Trunk size 1 ft. 8 in. to 2 ft. 11 in. Another name for this tree in the south is called Yellow Pine!
Thank you in advance.

Looks like a Mountain Ash or Black Locus tree.
Looks like Golden Rain tree.
Is the bloom a pink color? The neighbors have something that looks like this and it is a mimosa tree. It has a lovely fragrance, but you might be allergic.
If after flowering it gives puffy fruits like little rose lanterns then it is a Golden Rain tree which scientific name is koelreuteria paniculata.
While hunting for morel mushrooms in a Federal forest, I came to a small area with these trees. This was in the state of Michigan. The Federal forest consisted largely of maple, oak, birch, and some red pine trees.
I frequently visit our Ocala National Forest and I have found some smaller pieces of petrified wood and the park rangers have been very helpful in helping me identify the tree.
Can someone please tell me what kind of tree is this? It grew so fast, this is at 5-6 months.
It is probably a paulownia (or maybe a catalpa). I have one in my yard also, kept cutting it down every year and finally decided to let it grow and discovered then that it was a tree. They stain things that are underneath it, so don't keep your garden chairs there! Read the reviews here to decide if you want to keep it or not, or if it is invasive in your area: davesgarden.com/
