IDing Another Oak Hybrid

NTS, I came across this oak the other day. I would have walked past it had it not been for its yellow fall foliage. The only other oaks still holding on to some leaves are the scarlet and northern reds. I searched google images when I got home and the closest match to the leaves appears to be a sout...

Re: Help ID'ing Oak

Will and Jess,

Thanks. Do you have a picture of the bark on that 43.3 diameter specimen? The one I found measures 6.8' x 112.7'.

Re: Andruss island

Peter, The island is not hilighted on any of the maps. If your familiar with the Schuylkill River Trail it's the first island downstream from the Longford and Reynolds Dog parks. If your familiar with the Pheonixville/Oaks areas the tip of the island is behind the McAvoy brick yard and directly behi...

Re: Help ID'ing Oak

Thanks everyone. I was thinking it was a hybrid. Do we have any numbers for Saul's oak?

Re: Help ID'ing Oak

Steve,

This tree is in a 30 acre patch of mature second growth on the lower slope of a gentle rolling hill. Northern red and white oak are common and two black oaks on the crest of the hill. That's it for the oak species.

Help ID'ing Oak

NTS, Happened upon this oak the other day and can't positively pin down its ID. It was the only tree of its kind I could find but found similar leaves in another location but couldn't find another tree. I could provide better pics of the bark if needed. The bottom two leaves are of the underside. Ge...

Re: Whitesboro Red Oak

Tom, That's an impressive red oak. I agree with Jess on the trunk. I've often wondered about such trees. Could the settlers have spared it as a young forest grown tree that's growth took off once exposed to the open? They can grow quickly under the right conditions. I've counted around 106 rings on ...
