Jayturk said:Hey I need help identifying this oak tree. I am collecting acorns and planting from it, but can't figure out what type of oak it is. Thanks for any help!
I believe it is a pin oak, scarlet oak, or shumard oak. Possibly another type of red oak, but I can't tell the difference!
DaisyI said:To be sure which one, compare the acorns from your tree to both Southern Red Oak (Quercus falcata) and Bear Oak (Quercus ilicifolia). Acorns are always an important part of identifying an oak tree. And, if you have more than one variety growing near each other, a hybrid is always a possibility.
