Question name that tree...

I've tried searching on Google for 30minutes and I cant find out what kind of tree my grandfather had (it was torn down along with his house )

Its a tree in New Mexico, so its probably used to little water as it was dry as it can be where he lived, It grew very tall and had little greenish/yellow seeds (the size of an olive) that when they fell to the ground they turned yellow. If you opened the yellow peeling of the seed, the inside was real sticky and the seed inside was kinda like a barrel type of thing with about 4 or 6 black seeds in the woody barrel thing.

I know this isnt a botany forum or anything and the chances are a million to one anyone knows what kind of tree this is by my explaination but who knows, maybe someone out there knows

thanks

Here is an extensive listing of all the trees in New Mexico with a description of them. Perhaps reviewing the descriptions will aid in your search.
