Hello, I am new to the forum and have very little plant knowledge but was just curious to know what kind of tree had these odd shaped fruits/growths?

Thanks!

Its a Buckeye tree (Aesculus). I'm not sure which one grows in your area.

That looks like Aesculus parviflora - Bottlebrush Buckeye - which is a shrubby plant with long white bottle brush-like flowers in June.
