This tree is in a vacant lot across the street. There was a house on the lot at one time but the house was bulldozed down. I watched as they destroyed the house. The house was made out of wood. They just drove the bulldozer into the side of the house and down it went all at once. That was about a year ago and the lot has been vacant since then. Except for the well still being on the property, there would be no way to tell that a house was ever there. The tree produces a large seed pod that is shaped like a kidney.

The seed pod contains around 6 to 8 seeds like the ones in the picture. The seed pods are very hard and extremely difficult to open. I don’t know the name of the tree but I found the seed pods interesting. There were literally hundreds and hundreds of these unique seed pods on the ground. Right now the weather and temperature for taking walks of discovery around the neighborhoods. Have a nice day and take time to explore nature. Lew
