Tree Identification

Asked July 18, 2018, 3:12 PM EDT

Can you help me identify this tree? It was planted by a squirrel and is doing quite well. My yard is only 40 wide, and the tree is about 6 feet from a side fence. Should I leave it to enjoy? If it's going to be a problem, I can cut it down now while that's still possible. Thank you!

Your tree is an Ohio buckeye. They have nice color in the fall but do produce nuts. Here is more info to help you decide.
