marcescence

The retention of dead leaves on a normally deciduous tree is known as marcescence. It is normally the leaves near the ground which are retained and can be quite an obvious feature in a beech hedge, for example.

Hybrid Oak?

Have you considered that you may have hybrid oak? Which can be quite variable.
