BIG OLD TIM Not sure what the 'appropriate' name is for it but we always had them around when I was a kid, IN central Texas. They produce a small, hard as rock berry, that is yellow in color, and a large tree can cover the ground with the millions of 'berry's, in fall. Got my tail busted many times for throwing them in 'berry wars'. I have seen some of it cut down but never in a project. PLEASE LET US KNOW HOW IT TURNS OUT!! Send pics PLEASE!!
