Shellbark Hickory, just breaking buds but holding onto marcescent rachis from last year's compound leaves.

That's a Carya laciniosa, which is a great bottomland tree.

Thank You! I have been looking for months. I was looking for flowering trees rather then nut trees. After reading up, I am guessing my trees don't have leaves since the deer like to eat them.

If those are current pictures, then your trees haven't fully leafed out yet - those buds are just opening and the leaves have not yet unfurled.

The deer may eat them yet, but not from the pictures you've shown.

My understanding is that deer (at least in central KY) do NOT prefer young hickories.
