What Gray said...possibly American beech (Fagus grandifolia)? Definitely not a hazelnut.

Thanks for setting me strait.
I confess to being excited and not doing my homework...
Still pretty excited,  now I know where to find a beech tree!

And it looks like you'll have a nice harvest of beech nuts. Keep an eye out for towels and balls...you never know when you might find some!
