Mikey, it is a very popular tree here.  It makes a great landscaping addition as well as a mid June nectar source around here.  If I remember correctly, it's right after the Lindens bloom.  My bees have access to numerous Golden Rain Trees in the neighborhood and they really bring in the nectar.  The city has half a dozen of them in the park next to my house.
I have never started any Golden Rain Tree from seed, but have had some come up in the flower beds.  I would think that the seed will need to be stratified.  Here is a link to information on starting from seed. https://www.hunker.com/13429307/how-to-grow-a-rain-tree-from-seeds

To me it's any tree close enough when I get desperate. ;D

I see it produces lots of seed pods, I do battle with the Black Locust and it's seed pods taking root in my gardens.  Doubt it would do well in Zone 5B anyways but thanks for the offer.

It's worth a shot!
I heard the leaves are poisonous, so be careful, don't mix them into your mulch-pile.
