Matt= Beautiful White Oak. I really love the knarly look. Looks like the top was blown out years ago.

I presume white oak is very common in Ohio? I recall once pulling off an interstate in Ohio, and took a short walk in the nearby forest and saw a stand of almost pure white oak- something I've never seen in Massachusetts- where this species is uncommon- and when I do see it, they seldom look vigorous.

Yeah, they are really common in the hilly parts of the state, less so on the flatter parts. They are rarest where it gets downright wet.

Cool, really neat to see a photo of the tree in leaf.
