New to the forum and my first post and in need of help from the experts.
I have an oak tree on my property in central New Jersey. The family loves it but not the neighbors. Currently raining down acorns all around us. Need help identifying the type of oak and the tree's age. My guess is one of the four noted below. The photos of; trunk, leaves, outer core sample, acorns are included. The circumference of the tree is 133 inches around at 4.5 feet off the ground.
Some observations, the inner bark doesn't appear yellow and the acorns have a shallow cap (pics below). Never seen it in a brazen red autumn colors (could just be NJ pollution).
I appreciate your help, thank you in advance!
Scarlet oak (Quercus coccinea Muenchhausen)
Black oak (Quercus velutina Lamarck)
Northern red oak (Quercus rubra Linnaeus)
Pin oak (Quercus palustris Muenchhausen)

Didn't notice any yellow in the outer core sample.
