What Is This?


There’s a mystery in a nearby yard. Here’s a photo of the leaves. The tree is probably 40 feet tall. There are fuzzy green nuts or seeds hanging from some of the upper branches.

I first thought it was a horse chestnut, but the leaves don’t match. It’s closer to black walnut but those leaves aren’t quite right, either. Plus the walnuts come in  clusters. This tree has a single “fruit” hanging from each limb.

We have someone going to the Extension Service. In the meantime, any ideas?
