Bean Tree

I honestly don't know what this is. This 20 ft. tree lives in my sisters house in southern Missouri.

Do beans grow on trees in Missouri?
 
Many thanks +Ray Bilcliff ! I didn't know what else to call it. The seed pods look like a long green bean (the kind that grows on the ground) except they are more of a golden color. We don't have them in northern Missouri and this must be a tree that likes warmer weather. I'm hoping someone can ID it. Hope you have a great day!!
 
Thanks +Christiane Gallinat ! It has a large main trunk like a maple tree and branches too. It's about 20 ft. tall. I don't know if that's its maximum height or if it will get taller. This was taken in mid-summer so I expect the seeds had more maturing to go.
 
The green has a very upbeat effect - nice capture, Margaret.
