Re: ID some Oaks- different or just really old?

Aspen was what I first thought they were from across the field, actually, but the twisted shapes (I've only ever really seen skinny young aspen) and the attached leaves convinced me otherwise.

ID some Oaks- different or just really old?

Near my home is a stand of Oaks that the homeowner (I'm housesitting for the winter) has referred to as "old growth."

New from WNY, looking for ways to be involved!

Hello, fellow tree hunters! It turns out I've been one of you for most of my 23 years this far, but I was entirely unaware of it until clicking the "We Are Tree Hunters" link on the website.
