This tree is in a wooded area near Rabinowitz Fields in Vorhees, NJ. I would like to know what it is. Please help identify.

Is it near the huge Willow Oak in the woods next to it?

Yes John, it is near the huge Willow Oak. By the way, the Willow Oak is dead.

TC,

My first thought was diseased American Beech; the leaves are correct and the texture of the bark is close, but not quite the right shade.  The horizontal cracks also are troublesome.  Willow Oak makes more sense as an ID, provided the leaves you're showing belong to a different tree.  Willow Oak leaves will be much longer than wide, like a willow.  If you find these, you have a match.

It is definitely not a Willow Oak. The leaves that are pictured are from the tree trunk that is pictured. There are beech trees nearby, but not in the immediate area.

Black birch can have many different looks. I'm not certain it is black birch but it is a possibility. The cracking pattern doesn't look quite right and the bark is a bit too tan but it is possible that it's a birch. They occasionally have bluish bark in the southern part of their range. The bark may be tan in some areas.
