darker type more furrowed bark................I call this black oak
Of the "red oak" clan
Cruised 40 + acres with Backwoods Savage today and didnt see one like it. The bark is almost black. Man ol Sav taught me alot today.
Ed, it was a pleasure having you over. We'll do it again.
That Dennis is a 1st class guy, isn't he Tiger? Looking forward to meeting him when we make the trip to Michigan this coming summer...
Yes he is, he is a great person and I'm very proud to be able to meet him.
He truly is a top notch guy . . . I made a trip to NH to the Woodstock Open House . . . partly to see the new PH and get in on the free BBQ, but mostly to meet Dennis and some of the other characters from Hearth.com . . . I considered it a pilgrimmage of sorts . . . and the chance to meet the Reverend Backwoods Savage was a highlight of this pilgrimmage.
You're right up there with him, Jake......
Wisdom is priceless. I didnt know there was so many varities of oak till i started scrounging and being here.
I don't have any personal knowledge regarding what type of guy Backwoods Savage is, but I think that is a Black Oak. The bark of Black Oak lacks the shiny 'ski trails' of Red Oak, and the tree is usually more twiggy than Red Oak. The tree looks a little like Pin Oak, but I don't think the bark is right for Pin Oak.
Duck i thought so to but its not pin oak
maybe its a $5000 tree
I see a fair number of Black Oaks here that are very 'twiggy' like Pin Oaks. The tree in the picture is twiggy and I'll stick with Black Oak as my guess.
