I am usually very good at tree idendification, but this one has me stumped. Sorry, no picture. It is a large tree 30" but short (maybe 30-40') and spreading. Dark rough bark at bottom and smooth on branches. Here is the kicker, it is an evergreen broadleaf. That really narrows it down, especially in TN. The only broadleaf evergreens I see here are Magnolias and Hollys. It might be some type of Magnolia, but I do not think so. It's location and type imply some kind of planted ornamental. It has small, round to oval 1/4 to 1/3" seed closest in resemblance to an acorn, but not really. Leafs are small, maybe 2 inch plain, oblong, single smooth leaves.
