There were no photos of the foliage. 
Gymnocladus does not have orange flowers. Do you remember what the seed pods look like? That would help a lot.

I missed photos of the foliage, but some double pinnate compound leaves are Fraxinus, Gymnocladus, I'll have to go back to my Woody identification notes for this one....post photo of foliage again?

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.
