Help identifying a tree

jeanner(SW Ohio - Z6)August 15, 2010

I am hoping someone can help me identify this tree. I wasn't sure if I should post this on the tree forum but I think this is a native so I came here first. It is growing at the top of a ravine in SW Ohio. Is this a type of oak?

Thanks for the help !

Looks like it could be Quercus muehlenbergii - chinkapin oak.

Here is a link that might be useful: link to picture, distribution

I would say chinkapin oak or Chinese chestnut. Does it produce acorns or big prickly hedgehog-like balls???
