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.

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