Maybe Hura crepitans?

Hi,

This is the closest I can get to it.

Does the trunk have thorns?

If so, this is probably Hura crepitans.

TUNG-OIL TREE.
I LIKE IT.
I HAVE BEEN WATCHING IT FOR ABOUT 8 OR 9 MONTHS.
I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY FLOWERS.
MAYBE THEY COME OUT IN THE LATE FALL ??
I WILL KEEP WATCHING IT.
I HAVE BEEN IN THE WOODWORKING BUSINESS FOR ABOUT 35 YEARS & HAVE USED TOUNG-OIL QUITE A FEW TIMES.
I WOULD LOVE TO FIGURE A WAY TO GET IT FROM THE ACTUAL TREE.
EVEN IF IT IS TOO COMPLICATED IT STILL WOULD BE FUN TRYING.
THANKS A BUNCH.

I'm no tung tree expert, but perhaps it may be too young to flower?

No, tung trees and tung oil trees are one and the same.

It must have had a least one flower when you weren't looking because you have at least one nut. Smiling

I thought this plant sounded interesting so I "googled" it and the University of Florida says it is toxic and considered a slow invasive in parts of Florida. It does have a lot of uses. https://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/pl...
