This tree reaches the height of from ninety to a hundred feet, and from two to three feet in diameter; it has not the disagreeable odor of the foregoing members of its species, hence the name of sweet buckeye. It loses its leaves early in September, and cannot be used for ornamental purposes. Its wood is used for log-houses, wooden bowls, etc. It is propagated from slips, seeds, and by grafting. The husks that contain the nuts are not covered by thorny spines, but are quite smooth.
