What kind of oak?

Took down this oak today. Would love it to go to a mill but it will be firewood. Not a limb for 50 feet. It was pushing 90' - 100' I would guess.

Thanks, look like chestnut oak after googling it. That was my first inclination of what it is? How is it for lumber? Desirable or sellable? Slated for firewood.

Not really sure about its properties. They grow mostly in the mountains and foothills. I am in the Piedmont. Maybe you could do the alcohol test by cutting a small cube and putting it in a shallow dish of alcohol. If the alcohol appears on the top then the oak variety is not very rot resistant.
