American White Oak

Product Description

Native to Eastern North America, American White Oak is a magnificent tree.  In the forest it can reach enormous proportions with large wide-angled branches stretching out as long as the tree is high.  

Unlike its name, the bark of a White Oak is an ash-grey, with the sapwood light and the heartwood tones ranging from light, through to dark grey-brown.   

Trees may live to 200-300 years, with a famous Wye Oak in Maryland estimated to be over 450 years old, but was finally toppled over in a thunderstorm in 2002.
