I guess I shouldn't put in an ID without seeing a picture but I am guessing you mean Northern Red Oak since that is the 'red oak' that grows in New England. Every time I put it in I get this weird Gilbertiodendron species...

Update: i can see the bark now, and yep, it's Northern Red Oak which I think is what you meant.

Hey Charlie - nice to meet you and thanks for your comments yesterday. Yes, I did mean Northern Red Oak - Quercus rubra. It is odd that it an entry for oak comes up with Gilbertiodendron, which is a genus of legume. Sorting these names is tough!
