These images are from Sweetwater Creek State Park close to Atlanta GA.
The upland forests there are mainly Chestnut Oak, and Pignut Hickory with a fair
representation of American Beech and plenty of Loblolly Pine mixed in.

That is the habitat on a hillside where this tree was photoed. A few hundred feet lower
no more than maybe 1/3 of a mile away, Sweetwater Creek comes through. Its fairly wet
even on hillsides since there is enough rain most of the time.

Leaves: The leaves shown in the images are on average 2 1/4 to 2 3/4 long and 1 1/2 wide.
They feel a bit more than averagely heavy and thickish, with a pollished top surface.

There are some closeups of the leaves and one shot of just a section of the trunk.

It appears to be a young tree. The trunk is 1 5/8 inch thick and about 9 feet tall.
