We built the house we are living in about 35 years ago. Since I did the landscaping I wanted to have a buckeye tree because of living in Ohio. The tree was 6 foot high when I planted it. It towers over the house now. Buckeyes are a slow growing tree so it is a strong tree. The tree loses it leaves at the end of August but this happened a little later this year.
Here are the buckeyes in their shell before they drop from the tree. a few leaves are still on the tree but the green color is fading.
There are a lot of buckeyes on the ground. The squirrels are normally stocking up there trees homes for the winter. They also bury the buckeyes for later and I get new little trees growing in the spring. I gave Jedi some buckeyes when he was up north for the marathon.
