What type of Oak?

katisu(5 Indy)August 13, 2014

I feel pretty safe saying this is an Oak (but I'm not too knowledgeable about trees/plants in general). Do you know what type of Oak? I'll post a close-up of leaves and acorn in a few minutes.

Thank you!

Looks like Northern Red Oak from what I can tell - Quercus rubra.

Slight possibility of it being a Shumard as well.

Northern red oak, given the acorn & characteristic "ski tracks" on the bark in the top pic (twisting my head to see).
