Oak collection

Waite Arboretum has a fine collection of 65 species of oaks. Many of these species come from California, Texas or the Mediterranean region, so are well suited to our climate. Some species are evergreen, others are deciduous with attractive autumn foliage. The cork oak Quercus suber, native to southern Europe and northern Africa, is a most handsome evergreen oak with fissured corky bark.
