The are reminiscent of a Eucalyptus, but I'm not confident.

Well the shape of the leaf is similar to Eucalyptus. How about the trunk shape? I thought it's not what I would normally expect from Eucalyptus by the trunk shape.

The trunk shape is what is throwing me off too. I guess it is possible that these were trimmed at some point to cause this growth...either accidentally or purposefully?

I am guessing this tree is an Acacia based on the foliage. There are a number of species planted as ornamentals that have become naturalized, and without seeing flowers, I'm just guessing it might be A. longfolia. Some have pinnately compound leaves, some with leaves like those on your plant and some that have both types of leaves.
