Can't figure out what this tree is. Can anyone help with this?
Do you have any additional images, like closeups of stems/branches showing the leaf attachment?
That palmate compound foliage (especially if it is oppositely arranged along the stem) looks like a Buckeye, possibly Aesculus californica.
Ditto to California Buckeye Aesculus californica
I posted pictures of what the trunk of the tree looks like also. Please let me know if you need any further. The new leaves start redish and turn green.the bark is a bumpy brown/greyish. It has not flowered yet but most of my plants are like that because of the freeze. I believe the fruit last fall was cream colored.
Hmmm . . . big 'Ooops!' - it has alternate leaves, so NOT California Buckeye after all. Not sure what it is now!
Got feedback from a nursery that told me that it was a White Sapote. Cream colored feuit and the bark matches exactly. So, if they are right, that means that it is not a poisonous plant but instead an edible plant. Anyone agree?
That looks like it fits with Casimiroa edulis.
Photos that show the key ID parts of a plant (leaf arrangement, buds, flowers, fruit) and all the gross (larger) features make all the difference in reducing the time in determining identity.
