I've tried all the tree identifiers I could find and can't figure out what this tree is.
- medium tree, perhaps 15 ft tall?
- deciduous (sheds leaves in winter)
- opposite leaves
- compound leaves
- either serrated, crenated, or indented edges
- green leaves
- sharp pointed leaf ends
- I haven't seen it flower or fruit, haven't been here long enough to say if it does, and even then it may not have because of tree distress
Please excuse the poor quality pictures. The tree is in Arizona. I have seen one or two other trees in my city like it, but I feel quite confident it is not native to Arizona. Also, the tree is recovering from Mistletoe, a parasitic plant that tries to grow from the tree, I believe that's what the strange nodules are. The nodules look like nuts, but are growing directly from the bark (there is no stem).
Any help is appreciated, even if a best guess at its continent or country!

UPDATE! The tree is well enough to bloom! My camera phone is really bad, but here are some more pictures. The flowers have five white petals in a star pattern, and a purple trumpet-neck that doesn't open containing yellow stamen.
