What is oak

Oak (scientific name: Quercus serrata) is a native of East Asia and is deciduous broadleaf trees of the family Fagaceae. It is known as a representative species of miscellaneous forests. The bark is dark gray and can tear vertically, so its surface resembles the garter mesh of a sweater. Cedar grows shallow roots compared to above ground, whereas this species has a thicker root and stretches deeper into the ground. Especially since the main roots develop firmly, there is little risk of collapsing in typhoons and heavy rain. The leaves are green, but in autumn they turn yellow leaves or autumn leaves, they wither, turn brown winter, and fall in leaves in the spring. In the spring, the male flower blooming in a small tassel shape light green. Female flower is yellowish brown small and not conspicuous, but it solidifies upward and blooms. Fruits (acorn) covered with hats (shellfish) are made in autumn. Acorns are initially green and round, but when they mature they grow elongated and become brown, eventually falling. Wood is used as park trees, firewood charcoal, logs of shiitake mushrooms, and acorn is made into powder after being stripped out.
