Location: Maynard, MA; in my yard
This is a tall but otherwise inconspicuous tree, probably because oaks are so common around here. Leaves are typical oak shape, but have deeper U-shaped notches than the Red Oak. Acorns have a more prominent cap, covering more of the nut than Red Oak acorns. Bark is a dark gray-brown.
