Hi! I have a small tree that was planted when my house was built 7 years ago, and I have no idea what it is. We live in the northern half of Georgia. Thanks!!

I'm sure it's probably something really common & obvious, but I know nothing about trees!

With no leaves it is impossible to tell for sure but the bark looks like Arizona ash. It is an inexpensive common tree that landscapers often install. Arizona ash is a short lived tree, about 25 years max and soft wooded. Here in Texas they are called Arizona trash trees. Hopefully it isn't one.

There you got me stumped! (Lol I crack me up sometimes.) :LOL:

I'm not that great at identifying trees, and not sure what types are common down your way. But I would put money on it being an oak, which would be very cool.

Thanks! Will it be a problem to have this type of tree in a small front yard approximately 11 feet from my house? Looks like they get pretty big!

Depends on the variety. Some have a wide canopy, others don't. When it leafs out get an arborist to take a look at it. He can tell what variety it is.

Looking at the leaves, and the many lateral branching, I'm thinking it's a Pin oak. If so, they are a very well mannered tree, and would fit well in your yard.
