Usually in shopping center parking lots, or along roadways. The fruits are round, and very fuzzy. The leaves remind me of some kind of maple. I know for a fact that they cannot be sweetgum balls either. These balls are fuzzy not spiky.
Yes that's it! Thanks alot. So that's an American Sycamore huh? The leaves look strikingly similar to maples, but I guess I was wrong. I took a few pictures anyways because I thought the views look amazing.
Are sycamores the ones that end up with brown balls that breack into little seeds? We have trees around here that drop them, and when you crush them and put them down someones shirt its like itching powder. Mean trick, but I never knew what tree they came from.
The picture of the green balls sorta looks like them before they dry out.
