These pyramid-shaped trees grow around 20' tall and the leaves average about 6" long.. It bears walnut-sized fruits or nuts.

What is this?

Judging from the leaves it is a species of Ficus

The fruits are strung along an axis, in the manner of a walnut - seems like no fig would have that. This might be a deal-breaker for Quercus also, I'm not sure.

It could be a Tropical Almond.

Yep, I agree that it's likely Terminalia catappa.
