Buckeye, not buckhead.
The buckeye is the state tree of Ohio. Beautiful big shade tree with palmate leaves. The buckeye a non-edible nut in a prickly green outer husk, with a beautiful mahogany brown nut with a quarter sized creamy spot. We had about 6 of these trees in our yard growing up.
The mascot for OSU is the buckeye. (Thankfully trees can be mascots without offending anyone!)
