Picture taken at Goplana lake in Szczecin.
The germs of leaves of the Common Horse-chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) is a large deciduous tree. The chestnut is native to a small area in the mountains of the Balkans in southeast Europe, in small areas in northern Greece, Albania, the Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, and Bulgaria (Pindus Mountains mixed forests and Balkan mixed forests). It grows to 36 m tall, with a domed crown of stout branches, on old trees the outer branches often pendulous with curled-up tips. The leaves are opposite and palmately compound, with 57 leaflets; each leaflet is 1330 cm long, making the whole leaf up to 60 cm across, with a 720 cm petiole. The leaf scars left on twigs after the leaves have fallen have a distinctive horseshoe shape.
