A younger tree has very smooth less scaly bark.

Looks like wild black cherry to me. Very common. It will have a bitter smell when you break a twig.

Thanks, Cherry was my first thought, but the absence of fruit on this cluster of 9 or 10 trees was throwing me off.

Looks like black cherry. Crush some of the leaves and see if they smell like almonds or almond extract.

Black cherry. Break a twig and sniff it. Strong, unpleasant odor.

That's what it is.

Plenty around here.
We used to pick a bunch of them for my Dad to make wine.

The sap looks like puke yellow/green jello.

I think black cherry has an early fruit and would have already dropped by now.

Yeah, the cherries have already dropped here. And the smaller trees usually don't have many, if any.

Black cherries drop their fruit late July/early August down here.
