Seeding and Propagation/Strange acorn or seed pod

Hi.  We live in Illinois and have two of these trees in our yards and were curious as to what kind of trees these are that drop these strange looking seed pods.

Traci did a pretty good job of describing them, but I'll try to help.  They are light green, lumpy ball-like with spiky fringe.

I have been growing plants from seeds for at least 20 years. I have grown literally hundreds of different kinds of vegetables, trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, tropicals, some cacti, water plants, iris, rose, lilies, cannas, etc. I enjoy starting from seed.


I've been growing my own seeds for 20 years with indoor propagation equipment I built myself. I am also an Allexperts volunteer on the perennial forum. I have completed the Master Gardener course through the Kansas State University Extension. I have experience with a wide variety of seeds and I have also read through Norm Deno's books on seed germination.
