White Oak grows in southern Ontario and southern Quebec, and the eastern half of the United States.

General Description: The narrow sapwood is whitish to light brown, and the heartwood is a light tan to pale yellow, and sometimes can have a grayish-green hue. The rays are much larger than in Red Oak. The grain is usually straight, with a coarse texture caused by the open grain.

Additional Information
Tylosies in the vessels of the wood block moisture from wicking through the open grain as it does in Red Oak, this is why White Oak is commonly used for liquor barrels. These tylosies can also cause a problem during kiln drying, as the impede the moisture from leaving the wood, and if dried too fast the wood will check.
