Deciduous Twigs in East Woods

I noticed two main kinds of small deciduous trees in East Woods. The first, which was everywhere and easily identifiable from the twigs and remaining leaves was beech trees. The other I have not been able to identify despite the identification guide. The closest one on the guide is horse chestnut, but it doesn’t seem to match that closely. Next time I return to my site I will collect more data from those trees to see if I can narrow it down.

The beech was easy to ID from the divergent twigs with oblong pointed buds.

The other tree I simply have no idea what it is at this time.

Unfortunately my drawing skills are pretty sad. Here is my best attempt at drawing the beech twig with labelled parts.
