Notes:

This huge tree is in the backyard of a house I purchased in June. The leaves range from 3-6 inches long. Some leaves turned yellow in the fall before dropping; the others turned brown. The tree hasn’t produced any flowers, fruits, seeds or nuts since June.

    The leaves look like a beech.
    The pics on google don’t quite match up… I still think it’s a beech nut… A tree that needs to be planted more…

    The nuts are very small, and the trees don’t seem to produce many… when they drop, they disappear in the leaf litter.

    Possibly an oriental chestnut?
