    Red oak is a common term used to describe a wide variety of about 600 different species of oaks with reddish-tinted wood. This type of oak belongs to the genus Quercus, and most are mainly found in North America. They are usually deciduous trees (shed their leaves annually), but there are a few species that are evergreen. Red Oaks are characterized by their leaves with pointed lobes and bristles at the tips, and their smooth reddish-brown bark.
