Hi Basquesteve,
my first thought looking at the pods and how thorny it is..... Honey locust Gleditsia triacanthos

Regards,
Sue
Thinking of visiting the beautiful Sierra de Grazalema in Andalucia?

Hi Sue

Thank you very much for replying I think you are right when I opened the pod it was very sticky I have never heard of this tree before  but I will try and raise it from its seed

Thanks again

Steve
