I believe that you are right, Delaware.  Blackgum, probably even tupelo given the size of the leaves. 

I believe that Jeff's tree is a heavily top-pruned american elm.  Top of leaf surface should be smooth.  If red elm or slippery elm (same tree), the top of the leaf surface should be scabrous (rough like sandpaper).

So you are saying Jeff collected hazelnuts from an elm tree? How warm has it been down your way?  ;D

I, too, was thinking Jeff's tree was an American Elm.  I could not see the leaf petioles or the buds and I am only familiar with three elms.  The flowers, fruits or seeds that he was collecting and posting pictures of I am not familiar with.  

If no one has anything posted by 6 a.m. tomorrow when I get to work, I'll try to post a new one I got a picture of today.  I saw a couple of others today that I have not posted but I did not get pictures of them.

Thank you to all who have been contributing to this thread.  I have learned a lot.

My tree was a Sourwood; some call it Sorrel. Oxydendrum Arboreum.

Jeff's Elm tree makes me think this.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulmus_glabra_%27Camperdownii%27

The contorted version is often grafted to some regular root stock. So the tree has a normal trunk for 6-8 ft, then the grafted part goes wild. Popular as an ornamental, as it doesn't try to grow to 100 ft and become a problem. The original tree is still growing in Scotland, and is only ~10ft tall after nearly 200 years. 

I can find some more trees, but not tonight, so if anyone else has something, jump in.

That was a good sized Sourwood.  It was also tree of the day on July 7.

Today's tree was found growing on a small sand hill not far from a swamp.  Their were a lot of gopher tortoise burrows close by, sand live oaks, longleaf pines, black cherry and laurel oaks.  I had gone to this site to collect a turkey oak sample but it had died since last year.  The range of this species is from Texas to Virginia.  This is probably too many hints to make it a challenge.

This tree species tops out at around 30' and the leaf shape is similar to a laurel oak but the texture is similar to a live oak.

You ever seen an oak run?

Ellmoe knows today's tree (he's a sharp feller).  With the hints and a tree which should probably be utilized in landscape more, I would expect more to chime in. This is a pretty cool tree and easily overlooked. If I did not live in a low area, I would probably plant at least one in my yard.

I snapped some pictures earlier today of a few out of place trees that I can post when there's a day running a little short for the T.O.D.. one may be a repeat and the other might be a brother of today's tree....

I'm pretty sure one of these has been posted before,  but the other should be a new one. One is definitely not from the foothills of NC, and the other is found but not common.  It's like taking a trip to the sandhills without ever leaving home.
