The help I need at the moment is tree identification.

This tree is in my daughter's yard in Stillwater, Ok. Being that's the home of Okla. State University it has a large variety of trees and this one has us stumped. I first thought pecan but on second thought I doubt it. Thanks for any help. Now I'll try uploading pics to an unfamiliar site.

Hello and welcome! Do you grow elephant garlic? I love it roasted. Yum. :)

Can't help you on the tree...the bark and the distance shots look like a maple, but I can't identify those leaves. Out of curiosity I googled and pecan certainly looks like a possibility. I ran across this link for non-pecan-producing trees, so maybe it's a nutless pecan? :D

Hi Beth
Thanks for the link.
Yes, I raise Elephant Garlic for home use and to give away. No large scale production with only about 25 or so cloves planted. My wife says we have garlic running out our ears. I'm not sure what happened with this one pictured but it's about 3 times larger than the norm. I've been hoping for another that size since 2012 but not to this date.

Wow that is one large head of garlic. I've never grown garlic or onions but decided to grow them next year. I love garlic!
