Well, since noone else is participating, I'll guess live oak, and evergreen.

Sorry, all incorrect. The leaf is deceitful. It's a Yaupon, a Holly Family member, also evergreen. I'll just do an easier one then:

(by the way, we should do an entire series of pines because they're so hard to distinguish - I'm all for it)

A size comparison would have been very helpful on the last one, as there is no way an oak would have a leaf as small as a yaupon.
Singleleaf Pinyon?

I agree with JSGandora...the pine series is a good idea...

Sorry, my bad.

Also, incorrect. Singleleaf pinyons are rounder I think...

Also, yes, for now on, please please please post only pine family trees because they're the hardest. :(

Are you sure?? Singleleaf Pinyon is the world's only one needle pine, and this tree appears to have only one needle...but I might be wrong.

Sorry, I meant pine family. Pine family also contains spruces (hint hint) which are also pretty hard to differentiate.

Sorry, incorrect (see what I mean? They're so hard to distinguish). It's a bad sample. It does look more like a red spruce than what it really is. Hm, I think I'll just reveal the answer - black spruce. You can post a new one, I think I've monopolized this enough.
