Not a Bur Oak, looks like a Quercus virginiana, Live Oak. Where is the tree located, state and city Welcome!

But why doesn't it look like all the other live oaks in southern Texas see attached picture

Seems like the one that I sent in the original thread has its leaves on the very end of the branches which is different than the Live Oak I attached to this specific post

Any tree grown from seed can be a cross of some sort. I have quite a variety of "Live Oaks" and yours is similar to some of them. I also have Bur Oaks and they look quite different.

It looks like a city street, perhaps the mx dept or forester of the city could give you name of the variety

The most recent response is a city tree but the original post above is my tree and the two look different.

For the the "different" kind of live oaks. Which one is mine? The original post pictures (not street tree one, I know that is a live oak)
