Kentucky coffee-tree

Kentucky coffee-tree (Gymnocladus dioicus) is native to Indiana forests, sometimes it is planted as a street tree.  Here are a couple coffee-trees that are easy to find, in the middle of Indianapolis, planted along South Meridian Street. This is near Greek Islands Restaurant, there are more planted up the street closer to Shapiro's.  Notice that the leaflets have all fallen but some of the leaf rachises are still on the tree.  Picture taken December 18, 2011.
