Gemmo Memo: Oak

Quercus pedunculata or Quercus robur, commonly known as English Oak, is a species of flowering plant in the beech and oak family Fagaceae. It is native to most of Europe west of the Caucasus. The tree is widely cultivated in temperate regions and has escaped into the wild into scattered parts of China and North America. In North America, it is most commonly seen in the eastern and northwestern parts of the United States and in southeastern and southwestern Canada, where it tolerates a wide array of conditions and is extremely hardy. 

Quercus pedunculata or Quercus robur is one of the oaks most widely celebrated in literature; it has wood of exceptionally high quality for the manufacture of furniture, and it previously was the most important wood used in the manufacture of wooden sailing vessels in Europe.
