I don't know what trees these gnarly seed pods fall out of, but I always see them on the ground in the park.   I find them utterly fascinating.  Especially up close...

  2. It's from a Sweetgum tree - the trees have star shaped leaves. I have some near my workplace & they're my favorite because in the fall they turn so many different colors on one tree - from yellow to orange, red, & burgandy!
