The parent tree to this oak Toxey found on the side of the road near an old country church and cemetery. In fact, he liked it so much he wanted to name it George.  If anyone finds a post oak that produces bigger acorns than this gentle giant then we’d like to see it! The leaves are a little different too. No, we don’t think this tree is a hybrid; it’s just an individual with biggish qualities.

On a more serious note, Post oak is commonly found in the middle of dry pastures, high graded timber tracts, hilltops, and cemeteries, but performs like a champ on better than average sites with some extra care. Post oaks are tolerant of stressful conditions such as drought, fire, and tire swings. The Latin name refers to the cruciform leaves (shaped like a cross). Perhaps we all need a post oak in our yard to remind us that the Easter season is more important than turkey season.
