Burr oak-white oak hybrid?

2 months ago

This oak was grown from seed. It is about a year old now and planted just over a month ago. When collected the acorns, they were defineitely the "mossy cup" type acorn. The leaves also point to a burr... but the color has been really nice.. and not typical of a burr which are usually a drag yellow then quickly turn brown around here. The color you see in the pic is actually muted now - it was quite bright red (for an oak) for some time up until a couple of days ago. Now it is starting to fade. Is this possibly a white/burr hybrid? By the way, i collected the acorns from a planted municipal tree.
