#1)  Oak trees in South Jersey yard

Postby tclikesbigtrees » Sat Oct 25, 2014 1:54 pm

These pictures are of leaves from different Oak trees that are in my yard. Most of them I know what they are. A couple of them, maybe, maybe not. I know it is best to show the acorns and the trees too, but I thought that I would do this just to see what people's thoughts are of what each is. So what do you think?

TC,

If no Southern Red, how about a malformed Blackjack?

I didn't expect some of the answers that were given. It was nice to see some ideas as to what the leaves might be from. The first picture: 1 is post, 3 is white, 4 is Scarlet. The second picture: 1 is chestnut. The other ones I am not sure. One of them should be a Black Oak. As far as I know, there are no Cherrybark Oaks in New Jersey. There aren't any Blackjack Oaks or Pin Oaks anywhere near our property. I am not sure about the Southern or Northern Red Oaks. The problem is that there are leaves that look just as we think they should look for a specific variety of Oak. Then there are others that look a little different.

I don't think we have Northern Red or Pin Oak in Atlantic County, NJ- not growing wild anyway. We also don't have Cherrybark Oak that I know of.
