What kind of tree would you guess this is?
   

   

I feel as if it's some sort of fruity tree because it's next to an apple tree of about the same height, but there isn't any fruit on it as of yet.


BTW: Using the Tapatalk app allows you to upload pics from your phone. How cool is that?

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

An oak of some sort.

I was worried it might be a poison oak tree.

Could be a fig too. What climate zone is it in?

Science is the process we've designed to be responsible for generating our best guess as to what the fuck is going on. Girly Man

Western Washington. It gets a lot of rain.

I hope it is a fig then I can tell people it doesn't bear fruit because Jesus cursed it. Big Grin

Looks to be an Oregon white oak (Quercus garryana).

Definitely an oak. I could have told you that at the age of 7. Not because I'm trying to be a smart-arse, but because one of my earlier teachers made a point of taking us to some nearby woods to identify trees - mainly based on the shape of the leaves. You even have acorns, already.

So... no good quips about Jesus cursing fig trees... but good ammo against a Pro-Lifer, as acorns-as-oak-trees is a good metaphor.

At my primary school we had a whole row of massive massive oak trees. Must have been maybe 10 of them, maybe 7 or 8 stories high.

They drop a shit ton of acorns.

Yup. It's oak. I had the same teacher as Red.

RE: What kind of tree would you guess this is?
These days, the only leaf/seed identification I can do is:-

Oak (leaf and acorn)
Sycamore (coolest seed-dispersal system)
Horse Chestnut (Conkers!)
Marijuana (no explanation required)

edit: Oh, and Maple (Blame Canada!)
