Identify tree seed pod

Asked April 6, 2020, 9:54 AM EDT

I think I am allergic to this tree. It’s in the backyard of my new house. 30-40 ft tall. Hairy looking seed pods. I have attached a picture. Thanks!

What you are looking at is the spent flowers and it looks like they are from a silver maple. It is one of the first trees to send out flowers in the spring. It should be just getting to the end of its flowering stage and now seeds will develop.
