It's not a black Alder is it?

The leaves are very young beech. You shouldn't camp under beech trees as large branches have been known to fall without warning in the summer, a condition called summer, or July, drop. Beech trees in urban areas are often pollarded, cut right back to the trunk, every few years to prevent this happening.
