This is at my wife's uncles house I could pick up 10 5 gal buckets of these easily if anyone wants some.

I am torn if this is a Northern Red or a Pin oak.

Do the lower branches of the tree point down towards the ground? That's what I look for to help ID a Pin.

Definitely not a post oak. Post oaks are a white oak therefore they don't have the bristles on the end of the leaf lobes.

That's not a Post Oak leaf. Lobes are way too pointy.

The comment was meant to say Pin not Post as the whole conversation stated.

Looks more like a black oak to me - acorn seems too long to be a pin?
