    In the white oak group, but need to see a leaf, the pic of the whole tree doesn't sow up good enough

    Looks like a swamp white oak acorn. They have the extended leg that attaches them to the branch. Most other acorns attach directly to the branch.

    Tree pic is too bad to even guess

    It's an Overcup oak.

    Not an overcup. My guess is swamp white oak but yes we need a leaf to be sure

    I just moved to Georgia, and I have several trees on my property that have acorns that look like yours. I was told by a biologist friend of mine that it is a swamp chestnut water oak.----------------R

    Acorn looks like micheauxii, but as crappy as the tree image is, the leaves are obviously deeply lobed and thus not a swamp chestnut.

    Are you sure the acorn came from that exact tree?
