Default What kind of wood is this?

I'm looking for a tree to slice & use for cooking this winter.

This one looks good, but I cannot identify it. Here's a pic of a branch showing the elongated leaves. Can anyone identify what tree this is?

Thankew,
J

Looks like a pin or water oak to me. Any acorns around the tree?

I almost answered 'No acorns' without thinking, instead I went back out to check and whaddaya know, there are indeed acorns hiding under the leaves.

It's gotta be oak. Pin oak, willow oak, whatever -- it's fuel.

Thanks for IDing the tree for me.

I agree with the Willow Oak guesses. Definitely not Pin Oak.

Here is a site that can easily help you identify trees by their leaves.

Whatever tree it is it`s not healthy......either nutrients or fungus.Look at the black spots on the leaves.
