Need Help Identifying Tree
« on: June 23, 2018, 02:27:49 PM »
I need help identifying a tall tree in the woods in my backyard in Indiana.  The pods have a citrus smell and are falling now.  The tree is too tall with no low branches to take a picture of a leave.  Can anyone help?

Does it have large heart shaped leaves or compound leaves ?

I believe that they are immature hickory nuts that have aborted.  This is a very common occurrence to see these small, undeveloped hickory nuts in the heat of the summer.  A bruised, green, hickory nut husk has a very strong, distinctive odor.

This is the trunk of the tree and a BAD photo from the ground as there are no low branches.  I also have a large black walnut 30 to 40 feet away and the pods may have blown from it ???
