Anybody know what kind of wood this is? Some kind of oak maybe? Spied this on the side of the road near my home. Not sure what it is. Even if not good smoking wood, it looks like good firewood potential.

By the leaves alone... definitely an oak.

100% that it's oak but the variety I'm not sure because the leaves are a hair different of the oak we have. Wouldn't matter to me though, it's all burnable.

Looks like water oak to me.....which according to me gets classified in the "heck yes I'll take all I can get" category.

Definitely a water oak. Got a million on the property.

Big Swole's pic almost looks like hickory by the bark. Not sure tho.

Hickory usually has a darker circle in the middle like this

After zooming in a bit, I can see some darker spots. I think it is hickory.
