0-014 An Ohio buckeye (Aesculus glabra) that might be a spontaneous tree original to the cemetery. Our native buckeye trees can live for centuries but grow slowly to only a moderate size. Their leaves are among the first to emerge in Illinois, followed by their yellow flowers in mid-spring and poisonous “lucky buckeye” nuts in early autumn. We have grown several seedlings from this old tree which you can see planted elsewhere in Oak Ridge.
