I ran across this while hiking in the Smokies last week. Any idea what it is? I believe it is to small to be a hickory.

There seem to be several hickories in the Smokies, some appear to have small nuts.

Ok.. with the link you sent and a little digging it appears this is probably a Bitternut Hickory. Thanks for your help.

That's what I thought it might be but it's so far out of my knowledge zone, I hesitated to post it.

 
Do the next thing next. That's a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that's a pretty good rule, too.
