Hi christinereid54,

This plant does not appear to be a Northern Red Oak (Quercus rubra). It may be Texas Red Oak (Quercus buckleyi), although there are other possibilities.

You're right--I know it's a red oak but I don't know the variety/species. How should I fix this? Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

If the species isn't known, it would be best to move the pictures to the general entry for oaks: Oak (Quercus)

Thanks,

Hi Kent,
I don't seem to be able to use just Oak as an option. Is there a way for me to do that?

Thanks,
Chris

Kent gave you a link to the general entry in his earlier post.

Oak (Quercus)

If you're trying to move your photo and you have trouble bringing up the "new plant" in your results, just type the plant ID number in the space for "Which plant does this image belong to?" In this case, it's 529615.
