White Oak, like Red Oak, grows broadly across the eastern half of the United States. Although in smaller quantities than Red Oak, White Oak is a ring porous species with a characteristic strong grain and rays that are longer and more pronounced than those in Red Oaks. The heartwood is light to medium tan; the sapwood is slightly contrasting creamy-white. White Oak typically grows more slowly than Red Oak, and produces lumber with a “softer” grain pattern. The pores in the heartwood are impervious to liquid, making White Oak suitable for cooperage.
