Oak, White 7

 

This Specimen White Oak replaces its sister, White Oak #3, which died and was left as a “stem”, a tree with the crown removed, still enjoyed by wildlife. CATS is designating the healthy oak as a Landmark Tree on Arbor Day, 2017.

Catkins, or male flowers are visible in spring, mid April in 2017. Oaks have small female flowers as well, which are hard to see.
