    Gosh, it's hard to say....could it be a Kentucky Coffeetree? Where do you live and are all the pods like this or are some "fatter/fuller"?

    Go to this site and scroll down until you see Maple, Boxelder - Samaras. Do you think you might have these trees in your neighborhood? If this does not help, I would take it to your local garden store where they have tree experts (not the big box hardware stores). Also, when you need help on here, could you let us know what area you live in? Hope I have helped. Good luck!

    Definitely not maple, they are the wrong shape and texture of the "helicopters" that come off them. They have a bulbous end that holds the seed and a very thin end that catches the breeze and twirls them.

    Check into mimosa trees. The pods look similar to those that come from mimosas.

    Could be from red bud trees.

    It's a mimosa tree seed. It's a beautiful tree with pink fringe like flowers. It smells great. Unfortunately though, it's an extremely invasive tree, and will take over the world

    Some of the pods are as big as my hand. Some bigger. There are no mimosa trees in yard. No red bud trees. We have a huge back yard, and on the edge of it this is what we are blessed with:
