    I think your Black Oak and your Black Gum might be reversed.

    I think your black oak looks more like chestnut oak.

    Ditto - that black oak is chestnut oak. And that tightbark hickory looks like Bitternut Hickory - I don't know if the locals call it tightbark or what but...

    I think 'yellow pine' is a catchall term for a number of pine species. We have Jeffrey pines (world record holder is up the hill from my place) and Ponderosa, which are both apparently considered yellow pines. The local "Yellow" pine actually has yellow-tinted bark, that comes in large scales.

    I have found that different regions refer to the same tree by different names. EVERYONE here calls Boxelder by the name Manitoba Maple.

    I had some of that bitternut hickory a couple years ago that I got off a jobsite,that was a bear to split with a maul.I'd have to see more of the pine tree,it looks like it could even be bull pine.
