oak tree ID help please

16 years ago


I have been told this is a

Scarlet Oak (Q. coccinea)

Shumard Oak (Q. shumardii)

Nuttall Oak (Q. nuttallii) and

a special variety of Cherrybark Oak (Q. falcata var. leucophylla -not pagoda)

This young tree was grown from an acorn I picked up from a bottomland (but above floodzone) area in southeast Arkansas where the Arkansas River is preparing to meet the Mississippi River. It has grown two feet a year until this past season's April two-day 23 degree F freeze--I am surprised its leaves survived. Any insights are greatly appreciated.
