WHAT”S THAT: DeKorte Park, Lyndhurst

    As you enter the Marsh Discovery Trail at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst, you’ll see a tree with large leaves and strange green pods. And you may well wonder what it is.
   "This is a Paulownia tomentosa: princesstree or Royal empress tree," says NJMC horticulturist Ian McDermott.  "This tree has purple sweet smelling flowers in late May and June. Sticky seed pods."

    I am not sure. To be safe, make sure your dog and/or kids don’t eat the seeds. Might check further on the Internet. My searches turned up nothing.
    Thanks for checking.
