  1. Quercus laevis

    Quercus laevis, the American Turkey Oak, is a member of the red oak group of oaks. It is native to the southeastern United States, occurring on the coastal plain from Delaware south to central Florida, and west to southeast Louisiana. It is a small tree, sometimes shrubby, typically only 8–10 metres tall, though occasionally reaching 18 metres. The leaves are variable in size, mostly 10–17 centimetres long but occasionally just 8 centimetres or as much as 30 centimetres long. They have 3–7 slender lobes, deeply incised between the lobes, each lobe with 1–3 bristle teeth at the tip. The acorns are about 20–25 millimetres long, and, like other red oaks, take 18 months to mature. The American Turkey Oak typically grows on poor, thin, dry, rocky or sandy soils where few other oaks other than Blackjack oak, Q. marilandica, can thrive. It does not have the beautiful crown form of many oaks, but is nonetheless a valuable tree for growing on infertile, dry, sandy sites. The deeply lobed leaves are also attractive. It commonly form an understory tree in Longleaf Pine and other pine stands on sandy knolls in the southeastern United States.
