limbs are to high off the ground to get a good leaf, and the leaves on the grund are too beat up to ID lol

How big are those acorns? Put a ruler next to a few in a picture....and are the leaves on the tree rounded on the edges or pointy?

I'm leaning pin oak or red oak as of now.

I'd guess red oak, are the limbs normal or do they seem to droop, is so a pin oak.

if leaves are rounded like the white mans bullets its a white oak...

if leaves are pointed like the red mans arrows its red oak...:biggrin:

pointed with a lil hair on the tips...you got your answer...go back to my age old saying...its a red oak...now the fun begins on identification in the two main groups...its not as easy as some might think to identify the red oak or white oak sub species:D...i use a special book that makes it beyond reasonable doubt...identifies any tree in north america...but even with it oaks are as hard as its wood to id...:D
