    Carpinus perhaps?

    Possibly thinking Fagus.

    Probably not Fagus or Carpinus. Carpinus is too serrated and not enough "heart" shape where the leaf joins to the stem. Fagus is too ruffled along the edge.

    Agree Fagus, though F. engleriana is very unlikely outside of a major botanical garden collection.
