From the photo it looks like a pair of young Columnar English Oak
Quercus robur 'Fastigiate

Narrow, upright branches as a young tree, a broader pyramidal form with age. Dark green leaves hold color into fall before dropping. Attractive garden tree or mass in rows along avenues. Deciduous.


Botanical Pronunciation:KWER-kus ROH-ber
Key feature:Year-round Interest
Deciduous/evergreen:Deciduous
Cold hardiness zones:5 - 8
Light needs:Full sun
Average landscape size:Moderate grower to 50 ft. tall, 15 ft. wide.
Special features:Attracts Birds, Deer Resistant, Fall

Design Ideas
This form is excellent for spaces between the fronts of multistory buildings to soften corners and screen off sideyard. May be planted in a sizeable windrow on larger properties or used as a visual screen for unsightly land uses. Upright form is a problem solver for large institutional sites.

History
Although it is commonly called the English oak, due to extensive use in ship building and half timber architecture, Q. robur is also native to Europe, North Africa and parts of western Asia.
