We've identified a tree that we just can't figure out what it is. We have many of these "mystery trees" pictured here up close to our house. They may actually be an overgrown bush - many bushes are huge here as they have not been trimmed since time began. The tall ones of these trees are over 30 feet tall, one is about 2 feet in diameter at the base. The young ones are much smaller. The trunk is light wood. It has thick, soft leaves that are fuzzy on the bottom. It sort of looks like a lilac, but it never has flowers and the leaves are much softer. A few of the leaves have what I call the "glove look", as you can see in the pictures, but as the tree matures the leaves get more heart shaped.
Does anyone have any ideas what this could be??
