Description: The genus Quercus,known as oak, includes worldwide some 500 species with 58 of these species in the United States, making it this country's largest genus of native trees (Little 1979). Oak is therefore an important group of temperate-zone forest trees. In addition, oaks are significant components of many of the major forest types of the South (Burns 1983)and are the most commercially important hardwood genus. Red and white oaks together account for nearly half (46 percent) of the annual hardwood sawtimber harvested in the South (U.S. Department of Agriculture 1982). They also comprise about the same percentage of the sawfimber and growing stock occurring on commercial forest lands.
