SOLVED: What type of Oak?

San Jose, CA

I'm doing a project for school, and I need to know what type of Oak this is. Any help? This was in a park in San Jose, California. Thank you!

Could be Quercus agrifolia. But evergreen oaks are tricky.

Thanks Resin!! Appreciate it. Could you also take a look at my other tree?

I agree it is most likely to be Q. agrifolia. I also agree evergreen oaks can be tricky. IIRC there are 17 of them here. They may look quite different growing in a park, from those that are in their natural habitat To really be certain, could you post close-up pictures of the front and backs of some leaves, and also one of the growing point, and if you can find one, an acorn.
