    I think this is Quercus nigra. I saw a lot of these in Memorial Park in Houston, Texas. I queried Bing for Quercus paddle-shaped leaves and the Q. nigra photo looked likely, then tried Pl@ntNet and got that result. The leaves are almost unlobed on the sides, often with three lobes at the tip with very shallow sinuses.
