If it is live oak, the underside of the leaf will be a very dull green/tawny brown.  The upperside will be very glossy green.  The leaf margins will be revolute (the top of the leaf is curled toward the underside just a bit at the leaf margin).  This bi-color leaf of live oak will be very different than willow or water or laurel oak where the color on the upperside leaf and the underside leaf is the same color green and there is no curling of the leaf margin.  Give us a pic of the top and bottom of a leaf and a bark pic.

Maybe I can buy a bark pic from Logrite.  :P

I have sawn quite a few willow oaks - quartersawing most of them.  They tend to have very wide growth rings (1/2" - 3/4"), which makes the wood look different than traditional red oak.

The last three tree removal jobs I did in VA Beach were all willow oak trees. All were healthy trees that the customers wanted out of their back yards, mainly because the trees had gotten so large that they were worried each time we had a big storm or hurricane. Looks to me just like red oak, except for the leaves. Heavy with sap but splits great for firewood.
