    Hi Julia, I’m speculating this tree could be an evergreen oak species (?). Some of these with similar looking leaves to yours are Japanese blue oak/ring cupped oak (Quercus glauca), Japanese willow-leaf oak (Quercus salicina. Again, without more botanical details from this tree, for now I’m only guessing. Best wishes! Link to Japanese blue oak (Q. glauca). Click on images to enlarge.

    Appreciate for the update. If its not too late, picture of leaves underside also needed. If there are no leaves, photos of twigs & dormant buds. Also fruits on the tree or from ones that had fallen on the ground. Thanks & best wishes!

    WeÕre heading to Macon later this week and I will try to get better photos. ItÕs not doing much now in the wintertime, and we donÕt know if it produces flowers in the springtime. IÕll put additional photos in a separate post. Thanks!

    Can you give us a closeup of the buds & a side view of a the branch in a separate post? Also, if there were any fruits & flowers please describe to us. I have some ideas but more details are needed to narrow down its genus for you. Thank you & best wishes!
