Can anyone identify this tree?

Another vote for black locust. The growth and die off patterns are characteristic. Also, the bark is quite “ropey”, unlike a honey locust.
Thank you everyone for your help. We're very curious about this tree. It's in King George County, VA, which black locusts are not native too. I don't know what the flowers looked like in spring. I'm going to take more pictures soon. I'm terrible about identifying trees. Thank you again.


Been here a while
Can you get closer? A close up of the bark or even a remotely close pic of the leaves will differentiate the 2.

Black locust was widely planted to grow fence posts, so it is in a lot of places it isn't native.
I took more pictures of the tree today. With these new pictures, can anyone identify it or confirm that it's a black locust?
