A good “all around” oak, the black oak can commonly be found in a variety of places. This oak will tolerate higher and drier sites but is also typical of sites slightly above bottoms. A member of the red oak family, the black oak is a great tree for future timber use. The black oak is often accused of being high in tannins and a common misconception is that black oak acorns are not palatable to wildlife. This is not entirely true; black oak has significant wildlife value and is an important tree to add to your oak tree collection.
