What is this tree?

Asked July 7, 2015, 8:11 PM EDT

We bought 40 acres in southern Georgia and have been trying to identify the trees on our land and noticed this one for the first time due to its unusual pods. Any idea of what it could be?

Lanier County Georgia

It appears to be a type of Magnolia. Most likely Magnolia grandifolia but I am not sure why that seed pod turned green.
