Cow Oak

A large deciduous oak with dentate leaves and big acorns similar to Chestnut Oak but with bark like White Oak.  This oak is a bottomland hardwood and while native to floodplains it is an excellent shade tree or street tree on fertile upland sites.  Native to the southern U.S.  In Trees of the Southeastern States Coker and Totten quote a 1931 letter from a Mr James Henry Rice, Jr. of Colleton County, SC as saying:  "It is a noble and beautiful tree and might be termed majestic with no violence to the language"
