The White Oak: Here Are Some Key Things To Know About This North American Tree.
The White Oak (Quercus alba) is one of the prominent hardwoods of the central and eastern parts of North America. As the state tree of Maryland, Connecticut, and Illinois, it is known as an ornamental tree. The White Oak produces lovely acorns which are perfect targets of sustenance for squirrels, turkeys, pheasants, rabbits, and deer. Many different species of birds consume the buds of the White Oak leaf. And deer are known to enjoy the sustenance from all parts of the tree. With a hardy zone of 3-9, the White Oak is a preeminent shade tree with a mature height and spread of 50-80 feet and has firm branches. The White Oak tree has a slow to medium growth rate and requires full sun to partial shade. The wood of the White Oak is quite desired for barrel making and storing of wine and whiskey. And this is based on its durability, strength, and ability to seal and hold many alcohols on a long-term basis. The White Oak can live for hundreds of years and has been given special designations by specific U.S. states for the tree's long life. Besides durability, the White Oak tree provides deep color in the fall season with its gorgeous tones of burgundy and red. A white oak tree can live for centuries. As a shade tree, it is popular because of its spreading canopy that filters out sunlight. As trees go, this kind matures at a slow to medium pace with height increases of up to 24 inches per year. While happiest in well-drained, neutral to the slightly acidic soil, they can adapt to other conditions. This includes occasionally wet soil and moderate drought. Since white oaks develop sturdy branches, they won’t succumb easily to stormy weather. They’ll also put on a spectacular show for you in the fall with leaves that turn vibrant shades of red and burgundy.
