White Oak

White Oak (#01)

This tree has tyloses that give the wood a closed cellular structure, making it water- and rot-resistant, thus it is used for wine and whiskey barrels and the USS Constitution ship structure.  The fruit is an acorn, a valuable food for turkeys, wood ducks, pheasants, grackles, jays, nuthatches, thrushes, woodpeckers, rabbits, squirrels, and deer.
