Remarks :

Other common names, “Mohr oak” and “Scrub oak”. Usually, a thicket-forming shrub, but sometimes a small, round-topped tree up to 20 feet tall. Buds out around April; the buds, flowers, young stems and acorns are toxic to cattle, sheep, and goats. Adapted to dry, well- drained, preferably limestone soils of west- central Texas. Deer will eat the acorns, this plant provides good cover for wildlife. The wood of this oak species has little wood value except as fuel or fence post.
