Quercus macrocarpa The mighty oak stands 30 meters tall and embodies morale, strength and wisdom. The Bur oak has slightly less tannins than other oaks, making it the preferred choice to use for eating. It still requires processing to remove tannins, but once done, the nuts can be toasted, and/or made into flour and used in baking.
