English oak Quercus robur

Also know as: Pedunculate oak, truffle oak, common oak, European oak

Q. rubur, commonly known as English oak, is a populous deciduous tree native to Kazakhstan and can be found in Europe, North Africa, and Russia, and less commonly in Canada and the United States. This long-living, drought-tolerant woodland tree species can grow to 140ft in height and 80 ft in spread, and has a slow growth rate, requiring many years to reach maturity. English oak yields strong and durable timber and is resistant to decay. It is excellent for use in boat-building and furniture-making. The tree is also often planted as an ornamental tree. Its IUCN Red List status is “least concern.”
