tree with "balls" hanging from it


By Tomcat

any ideas. we have four in our new garden when we pick the balls and cut them they are full of sort of fluffy seeds



Sounds like Platanus acerifolius - London Plane. In larger ones the bark flakes off in big chunks leaving a nice silvery pattern. They grow into vary large trees indeed and reach that size fairly quickly, which may be something to consider if you have several!
