White Oak


White oaks usually live between 200 and 300 years, although specimens have been documented to reach over 450 years of age. It has a short and stocky truck with wide sprawling limbs. Their acorns are a valuable source of food for rabbits, squirrels, deer, and a wide variety of birds. Good acorn crops occur irregularly, about every 4-10 years and a White Oak needs to be at least 20 years old to have its first acorn crop. Its leaves turn from orange to a reddish brown in Autumn. The trees reach 80-100 feet in height at maturity.
