i rarely see these trees around cincy, if you want to see a real nice specimin, go to the winton woods frisbee golf course hole 12 -twenty feet right of the basket. check it out. the one in the picture can easily be confused with chinkapin oak judging by the bark. i didnt see any chinkapin oaks on the site, ill picture a nice one and submit it soon.
