White Oak is one of the preeminent hardwoods of eastern North America. Its leaves have 7-9 rounded lobes. Its bark is light gray, irregularly furrowed, or broken into rectangular plates separated vertically from the trunk. White oak wood has a closed cellular structure, making it water- and rot-resistant. Because of this characteristic, white oak is used to make wine and whiskey barrels as the wood resists leaking.
