Oak Tree Facts: Info on Types of Oak Trees
The mighty, majestic oak tree has, throughout the centuries, been the subject of story, song and proverb. More than 80 species of this beautiful oak tree are found in North America.
All oaks trees are deciduous trees with toothed leaves and heavy, furrowed bark. The fruit is, of course, the acorn. Like other deciduous trees, most oaks shed their leaves in fall. However, in warmer areas of the continent, some varieties, the live oaks, keep their greenery throughout the winter. Oak Trees have always been economically important for their hard, strong wood which has a multitude of purposes including furniture and flooring. The oak tree also have landscape uses although mature trees can dominate smaller sites.
Oak Tree Acorns are the fruit of the oak tree referred to as nuts. Acorns contain tannins which makes eating them bitter, but are enjoyed by many forest animals, such as the squirrel, deer, mice. There are acorns from the White Oak and Chestnut Oak which are little sweeter but of marginal value.
