I would love to figure out what kind of tree it is! It has large leaves that are pretty separated, a green seed/cone of some sort and super skinny trunk. They also get to be at least 15-20 feet tall.

Thanks for any help!

Hi Pgarden12, Welcome!

That cone looks like it belongs to some type of Magnolia to me but I'm not sure. I will move this over to the Plant Identification Forum where it will get more views and I'm sure someone will be able to give an exact ID.

One Magnolia that is a possibility is Bigleaf Magnolia (Magnolia macrophylla)
