I don't know a petal from a petiole. What's this tree?

Can you help me identify this tree? I tried to key it out but ran into the limits of my tree vocabulary. It's in Burnet Woods in Cincinnati and you can view photos of the tree, the leaves (which are alternate and barely serrated), the bark, and the fruit.
