Botanical Name Quercus virginiana
Description Q. virginiana is one of the larger members of the white oak family. This evergreen oak grows well in sunny locations and in a variety of soil conditions. This oak is popular as a landscape tree because of its fast growth and stately appearance. It starts with a weeping habit and with age develops long arching limbs that bend down and touch the ground then turn towards the sky to present its foliage to the sun, the huge massive trunk supporting the horizontal spreading limbs. A consistent crop of small sweet acorns make a very good wildlife food source. The timber is hard, strong and durable and at one time was used to make ship keels.
