Quercus robur, also known as common oak is a large deciduous tree. The leaves are dark green with 3-5 deep lobes, in the autumn, the leaves turn various shades of brown. The bark is thick, rough, and deeply furrowed with a grey-brown colour. As the tree ages, the bark becomes more rugged and deeply fissured. It is a hardy species that can be found in a variety of habitats, including woodlands, forests, and open landscapes. It is adaptable to a range of soil types and environmental conditions, but it typically prefers well-drained, loamy soils. Often used in landscaping and as shade trees due to their majestic and spreading growth habit. It supports a wide range of wildlife, as the acorns are an important food source for various animals, including deer, squirrels, and many species of birds.
