    this one is a multistem with 4 large trunks growing at slight angles, largest trunk about 12-16 inches in diameter, bark is uniform brownish gray, about 40-50 feet tall, buds seem much larger on other tree. any Oak experts here?

    A close-up photo of the underside of a leaf would help a lot (and include a 15cm ruler for scale), as would location.
