This pic was sent to me. It's probably a 45 minute drive and I'm not certain what it is. Almost looks like 2 different trees. What do ya'll think?

Hard to tell for sure...bark resembles elm.

Lets see?

45 Minutes from McKinney, Texas. Most likely one of the big leaf oaks. Most are simply called Red Oak.

You're right about two different trees. The top one has a well developed pith while the other don't. That top one would be Maple up here in Maine, and kind of looks like Maple. The others are anyone's guess.

Good luck with it.

Send me to pick it up for you and I'll check it out to see if it is worth turning. If it is, I'll let you know in couple months.

Oaks Riverchase Apartments in Coppell. Go get it, Bill! That big one on top does kinda look like maple. Of course it also kinda looks like black willow, which is more likely around here. The rest looks like red oak to me too, although some of that bark resembles box elder. Could be a goldmine or could be a wasted trip. Send finished pics! I don't think I'll have time to get there anytime soon.

I see

one big old red oak. Has limbs cut off from the bottom and a top cut. Has limbs that were parallel to the ground. Has a trunk that is reinforced to hold four parallel limbs. Only one big old tree, not a mixture. That's what I see.
