Came across this tree dumping lots of acorns so early. Did not recognize the type of oak tree. What kind is it?

    Sawtooth Oak.

    We have them in the Atlanta burbs too. Not listed in my Eastern Trees book. Here is a Va Tech webpage with info. http://dendro.cnre.vt.edu/dendrology/syllabus/factsheet.cfm?ID=67
