Default What type of tree??

Hi guys, sorry for the dumb question but any idea of what type of tree I have here? I think it's a maple but not sure. The recent storms knocked a boat load of tree branches down and I was hoping I could smoke with the wood in my offset. Any help would be great and thanks. Not the best pictures but all I have for now.image.jpg

Best I could find from a dead pike the leaves on the branches are real small and can't reach them so I had to use this dead one.image.jpg

You sure that leaf is from that spindly tree? If so, red oak is my best guess. Still need to dry the wood out.

Almost looks like a maple. Silver maple maybe. The leaf you are holding is an oak, but the pics of the tree look like maple.

I think the leaf you are holding is a Red Oak or Pin Oak leaf. The tree looks to be a Silver Maple, which is a softer wood than Norway or Sugar maple, but might be fine to cook with. A very mild smoke though and not a lot of BTU's.
