Thanks for your response, Elizabeth.  I was hoping myself that it might be an extra-hardy Delonix, but the leaflets are wrong.  All of the Delonix pictures I've seen have a very small, mimosa-type of leaflets.  My tree has leaflets that are about 3" long by 1" wide and pointed on both ends.  I really should have taken a picture of a single entire leaf before they all fell off.  I'll try harder next year!!

I'm attaching (I hope) a picture of the tree trunk.  I think the pattern of the bark is interesting.

Thanks again.

Just off the top of my head, Royal Poinciana (Delonix regia) comes in as a rather likely candidate. Huge double-compound pinnate leaves, ridged bark, and gorgeous red-orange flower clusters.
