Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.

The oak is a type of above ground tree. It is found in any temperate broadleaf forest. Like the overwhelming majority of overland trees, oak wood is brown and produces brown products.

Oaks are notable for producing extreme amounts of wood logs when cut down. A fully-grown oak can produce at least 30 logs per tree, and can go over 40 at times. It can actually beat out the highwood for wood production. The only problems are that, only growing in temperate broadleaf forests, they are frequently crowded in by other types of trees, and that it will be hard to find a use (or stockpile space) for all the logs one produces.

Their acorns are also edible and extremely plentiful, although they are not brewable, and temperate broadleaf forests have plenty of fruit-bearing trees. You may want to harvest the oaks for wood, and keep the persimmon and cherry trees for fruits.

Some dwarves like oaks for their acorns and their autumn coloration.
