I'm not calling anyone's tree id into question, but I'd be curious to know where there are significant stands of oak, as that is rare in the Adirondacks. And AFAIK, only red oak occasionally spotted.

I just happened to be studying ranges of trees for some odd reason, and recalled these maps as well:

White Oak:



This suggests any white oak you may see were planted by humans. I don't think I've ever seen one in the Adirondacks.

Red Oak:



Here they suggest the higher elevations of the central dome are where you'll not find red oaks. That appears to be untrue, but I believe they are fairly rare there and even in most of the western Adirondacks.

Black Oak:



Swamp Oak:



I don't mean to derail your thread. I enjoyed the pictures as well, but was curious.
