These are a common TX tree but I can't find it in any of my books. On the first one, I am guessing some kind of OAK but what kind? The second one I think is a type of ELM. Somebody please help.

quercus- oak. In the piney woods probably a post oak. Second leaf reminds me of slippery elm (just try to lop those branches and the darn thing cuts halfway across and then refuses to cut in two). Aw, I don't have my tree link on this computer...brb

Elm looks like cedar elm. Ulmus crassifolia. Oak looks like white oak type.

kittriana:

Are you looking through a full glass - or an empty glass - to focus on those images?

Probably seeing thru my memories, Old Wrangler doesn't often close his threads, but I had wondered if he had found anything...

The leaf looks like an Overcup Oak, which is a bottom land or stream side species.
There is a lot of variety in post oaks, so it could be Quercus stellata.
If it is growing on dry land I would guess from a distance that it is a post oak, (white oak family).
The elm is either winged elm (Ulmus alatta) or Cedar Elm, noted above. Both would be native in East Texas.
