sounds like a beanless honey locust

Could be buckthorn.  Get rid of it!  Very invasive.
That sounds like a dangerous tree, I would take it down for safety.

I call mine a JESUS tree because the thorns look like what they used for the crown of thorns they put on Jesus but it is a Honey Locust tree its a nice tree if you don't mind the very sharp thorns and deer and squirrels like to eat the bean pods. they can grow to be around 80 feet tall and are very hardy
is the tree all green color with spike alover and pink flower too?

look for silk flose or silk tree.
