Description:

I spotted these oak leaves a few days ago and couldn't identify them (Image 1). Then yesterday I spotted another tree with similar leaves (image 2). Being a young oak the bark didn't help me and I couldn't find any acorns. Today I found more of these and noticed that the young leaves were very red (like the ones I'd seen before) and I managed to find acorn cups.
