Tree ID - Blackjack Oak

Blackjack oaks are members of the red oak family. During 2007 preseason scouting, I've found numerous trees with good acorn production.


Blackjack oaks are found in central Texas, Oklahoma, and Missouri and east to the Atlantic Ocean. They grow in upland areas with dry sandy soil, often among other oaks and pines.


Dark, rough, deeply furrowed into squarish blocks.


Narrow at base, broadening toward the tip.


5/8 to 3/4 inches long with brown loosely overlapping scales.


If you are looking for a handy field guide that you can throw in your pack the next time you are out scouting, I recommend either or both of these books. I use both because often one will have a better photo or illustration than the other and two points of reference always helps. If you don't want to spend the cash for two books, I'd give a slight edge to the Peterson's Guide.

Next post: the Chinkapin Oak.
