Reminds me of Hickory the way the leaves are coming out.  Really just a guess there.

Have a picture of the trunk bark?

Bark pic will help.  Also, a close-up pic of the twig and bud with emerging leaves.

I will get more pics tomorrow. My mom said kind of looked like a nut tree(she saw the twig) but she doesnt know that much about identifying trees so maybe the hickory though.

The short shoots tilt towards blackgum :).  The leaves look like simple leaves, ruling out the compound leaf hickory.

Looks kinda like twigs and baby leaves from a sassafras tree.

Yes Sir.  It was the short shoots that gave it away, good old blackgum.  Spiral grain and all  :)

They are all the same tree. Actually the bark pic is different tree but still the same kind. Ive only found 3 of these in my woods, they are all right next to each other. Thanks for figuring it out for me!  ;D

Sassafras twig would be very bright green down here.  Some of the leaves would be lobed.  Bark would be cinnamon brown, not gray.
