English Oak Quercus robur
Family: Fagaceae (Beech)
As its name suggests, this tree was brought over from Europe.
It's commonly planted in cities but rarely escapes to the wild.
Since Oaks often retain their leaves in the winter, they can
sometimes be used for identification. English Oak leaves have a
small "notch" near the base
