Quercus macrocarpa, the Burr Oak is native to North America, including eastern and central Canada. Burr oak acorns, twigs and bark provide food for many mammals and birds including white-tailed deer, red squirrels, ducks and various rodents. This is especially important with the decline of other species in our local forests such as beech.
Burr Oaks are a large deciduous tree growing up to 30 m and it has one of the most massive tree trunks, up to 3 m. While it grows slowly, only about 1 m per year, its lifespan can be 200 to 300 years. The acorns are the largest of any North American oak and are an important food source for black bears.
