T-Rex ask your neighbor if this tree has ever had a flower or bloom on it, AND did it produce a seed or nut?
Leaves, bark, wood grain, spring flowering, seeds or nuts, branching pattern, fall color, and overall shape & size are helpful when trying to ID a tree.
A Red Oak looks a lot like that too. Both Red Oaks and Maples turn yellow & red colors in the fall.
Both Red Oak and Maple (even Silver Maple) are good for smoking. Now if I could get my mitts on some Sugar Maple...
