A medium tree seen in New Jersey with thorny green fruits.
Seems to be Aesculus Species to me.
Pictures were taken end of June, 17.
Unfortunately, there were no flowers.
Aesculus glabra Willd. ??
Thanks for the suggested id.
On searching, I had also come to the same id.
likely yes but I want to see more pictures of the leaves
esp in absence of the typical inflorescence and flowers and tree trunk
Hope it helps.
that’s more like it. yes. do you ever take the whole tree photo. if not. may be its time for you to take the next step
Thanks … There seems to be two Aesculus Species around New Jersey.
Aesculus glabra and Aesculus hippocastanum.
The entire tree was not visible.
It was in someone’s garden while passing by, and with other plants below, only the top portion was visible from a distance.
yes what you have is buckeye tree. other one is what call the horse chestnut
