The White Oak is also sometimes known as the Stave Oak, Ridge White Oak, Forked-Leaf White Oak and the Fork-Leaf Oak.
The White Oak is a classic oak tree. This tree exhibits a large, strong form that looks great even after the leaves drop in autumn. This oak is best planted in an area where the root zone will remain undisturbed. Since this selection does not react to soil compaction or construction damage very well, you may consider the Red Oak for those situations.
