(Aesculus glabra)

The Ohio Buckeye (Aesculus glabra), designated as the official state tree of Ohio, is a distinctive and cherished symbol of the state's natural heritage. Known for its striking palmate leaves and unique clusters of nut-like seeds, the Ohio Buckeye stands as a testament to the region's rich botanical diversity. Its name, "Buckeye," is derived from the resemblance of its seeds to the eye of a buck deer. This deciduous tree is not only valued for its aesthetic appeal but also for its ecological significance in providing habitat and sustenance for various wildlife species. Whether in urban parks or native woodlands, the Ohio Buckeye remains an enduring emblem of Ohio's natural beauty and cultural identity.
