Buckeye Trees

Buckeye tree didn’t produce nuts

Zone Ohio | gebmartin added on September 18, 2015 | Answered

Our Buckeye tree is about 30 years old and has always produced an abundance of Buckeyes. This year, we got less than 10 Buckeyes. The tree looks healthy, but I'm concerned. Any ideas?

Buckeye trees can live 80 to 100 years, so your tree is not old in that context.
Environmental issues are the most likely cause of less production by your tree. A plant that is under stress will stop producing fruit.
Drought, heavy rains, temperatures can all be contributing factors.
If you see no signs of insect or disease, I would not worry and likely the tree will return next year with a larger crop.
