Introducing Quercus marilandica Blackjack Oak, a small oak that is part of the red oak group. This tree is native to the southern and central United States, from Long Island to Florida, west to Texas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska. It is a hardy tree that can grow in poor, thin, dry, rocky, or sandy soils where few other woody plants can thrive. The leaves are dark green and glossy above, pubescent underneath and typically flare from a tapered base to a broad three-lobed bell shape with only shallow indentations. Blackjack oak produces small acorns that are a valuable source of food for wildlife. The wood is very dense and produces a hot flame when burned, which functions as an excellent source of heat for barbecues and wood-burning stoves.
