question for those with a greener thumb than I do. What Tree is this?

Can any of you identify this tree?

Haven't "owned" it long enough to know what it drops.

The leaves appear narrower, and less veined than the chestnut species I see.

Hmm...that looks like it! evergreen, that's surprising. that's going to be a hell of a snow collector in the winter.

And dioecious, so now I'm curious whether it is male or female.

Hmmm...that looks damn similar. This could very well be it (and explain the height, which would be massive for an african sumac. The tree is probably about 40' tall.

Willow oak...I would not have expected those leaves to be from something associated to an "oak..."

Call your county extention office. The agent will know what it is, and how to best care for it in your climate.

What part of the country are you located.

Sure looks like a willow oak, both in terms of leaves and tree bark but many if the oaks look similar. Water oak has a more rounded oblong leaf.

Willow or live oak, depending on your location. Prolific acorn producer.

This one is close to DC. Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. I did find the local agricultural and natural resource program by googling the county extension office, which should help with the specifics. Perfect!

I'm sticking with willow oak. I live in coastal SC where live oaks draped with Spanish moss proliferate. Live oaks around here have much shorter and oval shaped leaves.

There's an App for that... TreeBook

Willow oak gets my vote.
