Red Oak Lumber
Scientific Species - (Quercus)
The sapwood of red oak is white to light brown and the heartwood is a pinkish red to reddish brown. The wood grain is similar in general appearance to white oak. The wood is mostly straight grained, with a coarse texture that is used for interior millwork, doors, cabinetry, flooring and furniture.
The Oaks are by far the largest species group growing in the Eastern hardwood forests of the United States. The majority of Oak lumber grow on moist, bottomland sites with some species occurring on drier upland sites. Several species are found throughout the southeastern region of the United States such as, Cherrybark Oak (Quercus pagoda), Black Oak (Quercus velutina), Southern Red Oak (Quercus falcate), Shumard Oak (Quercus shumardii), Blackjack Oak (Quercus marilandica), Turkey Oak (Quercus laevis), Bluejay Oak (Quercus incana), Willow Oak (Quercus phillos), Water Oak (Quercus nigara) and Laurel Oak (Quercus laurifolia). Natural reproduction occurs on sites protected from fire.
