It looks like some kind of a Poplar, but I couldn't get closer than that.

as you say it could be Poplar possible "Lombardy Poplar "

Hard to tell with a close up of the leaves.

I'm not sure, but it might be a Pyrus. Have you seen its flowers?

Hi, I think scirpus is right. It looks like, Pyrus calleryana, A common street tree in the U.S. The variety 'Chanticleer' begins it life as a column then becomes more spreading and pyramidal as it ages. The leaves are definately pear-like and those leaf buds in the other picture are very fine as in pear, rather than the usual plump buds of Populus.

Both of you could be on to something as the leaves are really similar.

Pyrus calleryana
