Aesculus hippocastanum is a large deciduous tree, commonly known as Horse-chestnut or Conker tree.

It is native to a small area in the mountains of the Balkans in southeast Europe, in small areas in northern Greece, Albania, the Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, and Bulgaria (Pindus Mountains mixed forests and Balkan mixed forests). It is widely cultivated throughout the temperate world. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details. Source: Wikipedia, Wikipedia

The Horse chestnut tree is native to Europe and particularly common in the Balkans (northern Greece and Albania), and has become naturalised in Britain. It is now cultivated throughout temperate zones, including Mexico, Turkey and the USA.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis are possible following exposure to pollen from this tree; however, few specific studies have been reported to date. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
