They’re small like beech nuts. Can her get a leaf from the tree or something? I seem to recall beech nuts having a rough outer husk. The ones in your picture look smooth.

Those are indeed dehusked beechnuts.

Could they be oak galls?

Beechnuts are three sided, but about that size, they looked more like a small deformed buckeye, but not.

Thanks for the discussion. Don’t know if we have beech here. Those nuts are round, not 3 sided. He’ll try to get me some pics of the tree and leaves. He said this tree is well over 4’ in diameter.

Yeah, lets see the wood, if you can get it. I was going to say hazelnut, but I just don’t know.

Not sure if the size matches, but the nuts resemble what comes from a nutmeg hickory tree – http://www.duke.edu/~cwcook/trees/camy.html

They could well be immature aborted hickory nuts. They abort and fall off the tree when the tree is stressed, like in a drought.

Nope, not a nutmeg hickory or hickory. Wrong nuts. Maybe he’ll get me some pics of the tree and leaves which may help. Thanks all for looking.

those are mogambo nuts, they come from an exotic tree that only grows in your state andy, the tress get very large and the wood is very hard, the more you gambo about these nuts the more famous they become, so i shall look mo for gambo and see what comes up, if any of this sounds slightly off, well, i will let you each figure this out, when someone might say a nut is a nut…...well there partly accurate, but the proof is in the pudding , which has no nuts in it, if you think that maybe i have been around grandmas jug for any amount of time, you would not be correct, but sometimes the nut falls close to the tree. so after all is said and done, the amount of time it has taken me to type this, well, its just darn good reading…

Andy, from what I could find they do resemble aborted macadamia nuts.?!.? I didn’t think Macadamia could grow in your parts but I did find a few sites that said they would grow in Oklahoma-I can’t really believe it but could it be? Gene

A macadamia way out in the woods would suprise me but who knows? He hasn’t been back to take pics but I’ll update this post when he does.
