This oak tree is pretty young, it was just a sapling 7 years ago... it's maybe 25 to 30 feet tall now. This one I'm pretty sure is a Red Oak but which one?

Another piece of information that might help the oak wizards is whether or not the dead leaves fall in autumn or stay on the tree until pushed off in spring.

Interesting, porkpal! I'll be sure to make a better note of that as I've seen trees do both around here. Thumbs up
