Are the 'soapnuts' real nuts growing on a tree?

I have recently visit Taiwan and had the advantage to see how to use this soap nut. It´s the shell, that´s a little sticky, they use as soap. It was possible to use fresh in a little net bag as a soap. But the most common way is to refine the shells and manufacture an ordinary soap.

The tree is rather high with thin branches, but the nuts is picked at the ground.
