Catalpa seed pods are smooth[you don't see the beans like the locust] ...To help propagate locust trees merely wait till the seed pods fall and strip the seeds out of the covering. Plant them in an open area about a half inch deep. Nature will germinate them and you can move them easily. The Northern Catalpa is also called the cigar tree,, I really can't tell you for sure if trees like box-elder, northern catalpa, sugar/silver maple or black tupelo only produce seeds on female trees or if they are like Mountain Ash that are in the rose family and every tree produces fruit/seeds.

See if you think that 1st tree is a Honeylocust (Gleditsia triacanthis) and for the 2nd tree... try River Birch (Betula nigra(.

adding... I better hang it up tonight... that misspelling woulda sent you on a wild goose chase. It's triacanthos not triancanthis, http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=GLTR. Here's the birch, http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=BENI.
