Quercus gambelii x macrocarpa | New Mexico

The oak type just described appears repeatedly in select, isolated locations. Here is a descriptive scientific collection of leaves and acorns from a tree growing near to the individual just described. People from California and Oregon may note that this leaf is beginning to take on an appearance that resembles the foliage of Q. lobata and Q. garryana, the Valley Oak of California, and the Oregon White Oak.
