Q: What kind of tree has no money?
A: Burr oak (broke).

A New Hampshire carpenter was called upon to put up a bulletin board in the church vestry. Since the walls were marble, he tried to glue it rather than nail it but ran into problems until he tried making the frame out of burr oak. That adhered quite successfully, leading him to admonish his young assistant, ."If it ain’t burr oak, don’t affix it.”
