Last Word on Seed Pod

OK, I just received a message from a local arborist who says that the unusual seed pod that I blogged about here and here is actually a Turkish Hazel or Turkish Filbert Tree (Corylus colurna). He also said that the trees maybe infested by a bug causing the unusual involucres but Wikipedia claims they are a natural morphological trait. It looks like we've found our mystery tree.
