Ogelthorpe Oak - Quercus ogelthorpensis
Very restricted in its native range, this white oak grows in isolated well-drained locations in the Southeast, particularly in Georgia and western South Carolina, away from the coast. It is a medium-sized species (80 feet) with a straight trunk that may be more than two feet in diameter. The scaly bark is whitish-gray and broken into scales. The leaves are elliptic, up to 5 inches in length with a blunt base and tip and yellowish hairs beneath. The small acorn has a shallow, turban-shaped cup and is grayish-brown; it ripens in a year.
