2 more for ID

Spring, TX

I need some help with these 2. The first one with a leaf like catcher's mitt is on a small non-descript seedling about 8" tall. There is another leaf in the same cluster that has a lob on either side. With the 2 different leaves I kinda thought it might be a Sassafras but I don't think so.The leaves and root have no smell. This was the best leaf of the 4 clustered at the top

The second is also off a slender seedling about 10" tall with a trunk that doesn't give any clues. I think it is an Oak but which one. We have many Oak in this part of TX and it seems like there are several that look like this. So which is it.

The first one looks like a Mulberry. Either Morus or Broussonetia. I'm thinking the later.

I'd say you are correct about being an Oak, but my goodness, there are more than 200 varieties. You might want to try a google of primarily Texas Oaks. Good luck! Maybe White.

I'd use the USDA Plant database by county: http://plants.usda.gov/adv_search.html and genus.
