Quercus alba. The mighty oak stands 30+ meters tall and embodies morale, strength and wisdom. Nuts are large (2.3-3cm long) and lower in tannins than red oaks, which make them more rewarding to go to the work of cracking and leaching the tannins to use them as a flour/food source. The wood is popular in barrel and cask making thanks to its elastic yet durable strength.
White oaks are native to Canada, and on the endangered species list thanks to their use in building ships (rot resistant) and slow growth habit. Very long-lived trees, these majestic beauties can grow up to the ripe old age of 450 years old.
