Quercus arkansana is threatened by habitat loss, pine plantations and clearing of land. It is a shade-loving tree that grows in the understories of mesic pine forests and southern hardwood stands. The IUCN considers it rare in Arkansas, endangered in Florida, and vulnerable in Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana. Get to know this beautiful and rare tree, and help in its conservation.
