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.

This is surely Blackgum. Noticed it by the bark.
