I HAVE A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH MY TREES!
Sure, the two tall maple trees in my back yard provide me with an entire summer of shady afternoons and cool gentle breezes where I can lounge around and read a ton of fiction on my kindle. But right now, I would like to call the hit squad to rub them out.
The inter-web says the seeds are edible. But first you have to pop them out of the pods and boil them until they no longer have a bitter taste. Then you can roast them with a little salt and eat them like nuts. I think I’ll pass. You would think the trees would at least produce a little maple syrup.
