Species of the Week: White Oak (Quercus alba)
Now that we are well into November, most of the brightly colored leaves of Autumn have fallen and faded and we are left with patches of leaves that are burgundy red and shades of brown lingering on the tree limbs. Have you ever wondered why some leaves never actually fall during the Fall? Check out this post to learn about one of the species that keeps their leaves through the winter! Hunters may be especially interested in this species, as it produces some of "best" food for wildlife at this time of the year!
