Leaf: 7" long, 5 1/2" at widest point. Some of the leaves higher up on tree still green but turning brown as it's fall color. Bark is grayish beneath various types of lichen and moss. Broad, flatter acorn cup of reddish brown more saucer shaped than bowl. I chose to id some trees in the downtown Pittsfield area for anyone wanting to learn what trees are on their daily commute.
