    We did not tear a leaf, but eucalyptus didn't come to mind when I saw it. they had a pretty big canopy and I also noted quite a bit of dead wood in there... But of course only seeing these trees I cannot conclude if dead wood is common of the Sp. or if these trees have been abused (times without water, pests, or something) The fruit was definitely bigger than the little things the eucalyptus around here have.

    dunno. doubt it is a eucalyptus. i see what appears to be compound leaves. None of the eucalyptus I know have them ( but I havent seen all of them). Was leaning towards something in the families: meliaceae or anacardiaceae. maybe a Rhus or Pistacia chinensis ?

    it is definitely not eucalyptus. The tree bark gives that away as eucalyptus has smooth skin.

    I too have to say it's in the Family Junglandaceae. It looks very similar to a walnut.
    My guess would be the Arizona Walnut http://www.cirrusimage.com/tree_Arizona_walnut.htm

    I second Millworkman's opinion: Looks like something in the juglandaceae family which includes hickory and walnuts.
