I found these large pods in a wooded area near my home and have never seen them before, was wondering what type tree they came from. They are about 6 inches long and 2 inches wide

Hi Brenda:

Without photographs, I am going to assume the tree you are referring to is Kentucky coffeetree (Gymnocladus dioicus).
