Oak White Rift

Oak White Rift

Quercus alba


Entire eastern United States, especially in the Central States and down through the Appalachian region.


Color: From light brown with a greyish tinge in the heartwood to shades of ochre in the sapwood.

Pores are angular and very numerious and filled with a glistening substance called tyloses, which makes this wood especially suitable for water-tight containers (barrel staves) and where water-resistance is required. Tannic acid in the wood protects it from fungi and insects. Closer grained than red oak.
