Hello. I'm wondering if anyone can help me ID this tree in my yard. It fruits and I hope it is fruit I can eat. Picture attached. If you need more details let me know.

Think its could be a horse chestnut tree. Aesculus hippocastanum

It has flowers in the spring all over it. It also currently has fruits. Are there any trees that fruit like this where I can not eat the fruits?

If it is a horse chestnut, you cannot eat the fruit. Do you have a picture of the fruit?

Those leaves do resemble Horse Chestnut. For comparison, you can view photos of leaves, fruit, flowers and bard in our database: Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum)

This page also has good photos for comparison and shows the distribution of the tree in New England: https://gobotany.newenglandwil...

Don't keep us in suspence. Share EVRYTHING and every photo. What did the flowers look like - describe them? Show us the fruit. Our ID's are always faster and more accurate if we don't have to guess what might be.

The fruits look like cherries not like the horse chestnut. Which is why I was asking if it could be edible but they are not red or black like cherries but green.

The first pic shows ten leaves, not two leaves with five leaflets each. Also, leaf arrangement is alternate, not opposite.
Sorry, I don't know what it is.
