Butternut came to mind but the fact that it is tall and narrow was a bit perplexing. It has a little wavy pattern in it that I haven't seen in any tree before. Thanks for the input. I'll assume butternut unless someone else is quite certain it is different.

If you are still not convinced that this is a butternut, there is also one located behind the Sugarlands Visitor Center for comparison. It is on the short trail at the first bridge, off to your left along the creek bank. It is the big leaner!
