Red Oak grows in the eastern half of the United States as far south as Alabama, and as far north as southern Quebec. This tree usually grows in pure stands and likes moist loamy, sandy, to gravely soil.

General Description

The heartwood is a light reddish-tan, and the color varies based upon growing location. The sapwood in paler in color, and may have a gray tint. Like many oaks the ray structure is prominent. The rays of Red Oak are generally smaller, narrower, and darker in color then those of White Oak. Quarter sawn Red Oak has a pleasant ray fleck, which is less pronounced then that of White Oak. The grain is usually straight and open, with a medium to coarse texture depending on where it grew.
