LITHOCARPUS DENSIFLORUS

Tanoak

Tanoaks are named for the tannin in their bark, which was traditionally used to tan hides. Tanoaks are curved when young and straighten out as they age.

Highly Evolved

Tanoaks exist in a category of their own. While they look like oaks, they’re actually the evolutionary link between oaks and chestnuts.
