Oaks (Species, Quercus sp.; Family, Fagaceae)

Oaks occur naturally in the northern hemisphere temperate zones and at higher altitudes in the subtropics. Most are trees, some of which are very large and are deciduous and semi-deciduous. The planting of oaks in Australia began in the first half of the 19th century when European settlers imported species from their former homelands. There are many different species planted in gardens and parklands in and around Canberra.They are wind-pollinated and produce large amounts of pollen during September to October.
