Turkey Oak (Quercus laevis) is a small, moderately fast to fast-growing tree found on dry sandy soils of ridges, pinelands, and dunes, often in pure stands. This oak is not commercially important because of its size, but the hard, close-grained wood is an excellent fuel. The acorns are an important food to wildlife. Turkey oak is so named for its 3-lobed leaves which resemble a turkey's foot. Drought tolerant.
