Looking for an impressive and long-lived hardwood tree to enhance your landscape? Look no further than Quercus alba, commonly known as White Oak. While not the tallest tree around, it can grow to a massive size, with branches that can stretch far and wide. The White Oak is native to much of eastern North America and serves as an important hardwood timber tree. It's also a popular choice for landscapers and is even the Illinois State Tree! The name "alba" refers to the tree's light ash-gray bark. While it's rare to find an individual specimen with truly white bark, the finished wood is a beautiful color. White Oak trees can live up to 300 years and produce acorns that are a valuable food source for many types of wildlife. The wood itself is resistant to water and rot, making it perfect for use in barrels, shipbuilding, construction, and even the interior finishing of houses. Whether you're a woodworker, musician, or just looking to add a stunning and long-lasting tree to your yard, White Oak is an excellent choice.
