Pulled this out of the same fence row. Don't have a clue as to what it is. Been searching for about an hour

Anyone have a clue??

Thanks in advance.

Looks like young oak leaves I believe. Looks like the oak around here which are mostly all red, white, and hybrids.

Yeah
I thought the same thing except the leaves on this are somewhat "fuzzy". Never seen an oak with that sort of texture. Most I've come across have smoother leaves.

Thanks for the response though :)

I had collected a seedling with this type of leaf thinking it was a chinkapin oak. Come to find out the tree down the street was a chestnut of some sort. I don't know if it is considered a compound leaf but I was seeing single pieces and wondering why there were chestnut hulls under an oak tree. There are a few different kinds but that might get you in the right direction.

Also, chestnuts are opposite, not alternate.

I have some oaks in which the young leaves are "fuzzy" but harden up in a week or two.

Have you tried smoking any yet? Looks promising...
