Quercus canbyi | Central Valley

The lovely glossy, medium size leaves of Q. canbyi. This tree is related to the North American Red Oaks, but the leaves are smaller, and have much less lobe and sinus than their northern cousins. Q. canbyi is closely related to Q. gravesii, a tree which grows just north of the border with Mexico.
