Quercus coccinea

Scarlet oak is often confused with pin oak, but its leaves have noticeable C-shaped, bristle-tipped lobed and are wider in the middle than those of pin oak. Unlike pin oak, which has sharply descending lower branches, scarlet oak holds its branches directly away from the trunk and the top is rounded, not pyramidal. Since its lower branches are held more uptight than those of a pin oak, it is better for use as a street tree or for shading a driveway. A native tree.
