That description doesn't bring any particular tree species to mind. I suggest you take a sample from the tree or a photo of it to your County Extension Office. If you can e-mail them a digital photo they can put it in the Texas Digital Diagnostics system and get a quick reply from a horticultural specialist. Make sure the photos are in crisp, sharp focus and take a distant and a closeup shot. Here's your county office's contact information:
Mark Arnold, CEA-Ag
701 S Interstate Highway 35 E, Waxahachie, TX
