    Good thing I found this topic before I posted my question. I was at the Cedar Ridge Preserve near Dallas on November 12th and took a couple pictures of these seed pods, but didn't know the name of the tree.

    Unfortunately all the leaves had fallen off the tree already, so I couldn't identify the tree by leaves.
