Is it Celtis pallida? I think it fits the descrption and is called Granjeno as a common name and it produces orange berries.

Good luck!

You seem to be looking for very nice native plants. Unfortunately native plants are underused so its a challenge to find some of them, but if you want them they are worth looking for.

Good luck finding them!
