    I looked up Oak and it's different. I have a Mulberry in my yard and the leaves and the bark is different.

    I was curious because I see this tree on my walk and it's the only one like it that I've seen. The bark is what caught my attention, it's so wavy and it splits in places as if it were the Red Sea. If you look to the lower left you can sort of see it splitting.

    I think it's a cork oak.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    We can eliminate pine trees, palm trees, palo verde, sequoia, redwood, redbud, orange, lemon, tangerine and eucalyptus. Hope that helps.

    I think that's a Ford Flex. But this ghetto is far from vanilla. No purity in this 'hood. And this is the good part.

    You might be right. The bark is similar as is the leaves.

    Having posted that I love wild yeasted Belgian beer and local craft beer temporarily casked in whiskey barrels.

    Well, I went looking on google maps to see if I could get a better view of the tree. I found it, but other angles didn't tell me much.

    You are correct. Google streetview shows it as a GMC.

    ......this. They make nice trees in our area, but eventually get too big to be good street trees.
    I live in the same block as two of the biggest cork oaks in the Central Valley, well over 100 years.

    Whatever it is its been badly pruned for many years... the heavy topping has distorted its true shape... so sad that people top instead of prune trees.. I think its cork as well...

    It's doubtless under some utility wires. They prune a lot of stuff in a V shape now for that reason.

    Yep, there are a bunch of powerlines just above the tree. You can see a phone pole quite close in the first photo, behind the tree.
