    You wouldn't be able to post it here but I bet a panorama would work!

    Place a familiar object next to it for perspective. Getting as low to the ground as possible is a good trick. Don’t center the tree in the photo. Put it off a little to one side or the other. These are some tricks I use.

    @huronwoodsman Yeah I thought about doing that. I will have to give it a try next time

    Do you mostly go off bark this time of year or can you look at fallen leaves/twigs for buds?

    @swineland bark typically. Especially higher up in the canopy. Chinquapin and white oak can look the same at eye level, but higher up especially under larger limbs, white oak tends to be very scaly.
