NotesThere are Scarlet and Pin Oaks in the park.  Their leaves, spare and almost skeletal, are similar, the Scarlet Oak being more asymmetrical.  Both have have an untidy habit of downswept branches that contain much dead wood.  The easy way to tell which is which is to look at the buds.  The buds of Scarlet Oak are about 5mm and the scales have hairy edges somewhat like small Turkey Oak buds.  The buds of the Pin Oak are smaller, 3mm, and smooth.More about Scarlet Oaks if you click here.info
