Oak

There are 530 different species of oaks in the northern hemisphere. Quercus is how romans named these trees.

In Spain, it is difficult to differentiate each species that’s why they received several names. We work with Quercus Robur, a deciduous tree that can reach up 40mts height. This tree is valued for its importance to insects and other wildlife: many insects live on the leaves, buds, and in the acorns. Acorns are also an important food source for small mammals and birds, who also play an essential role of propagation.

Another oak that we love is Quercus faginea is a medium-sized deciduous or semi-evergreen tree growing to 20 mts tall. It can live as long as 600 years! It’s acorns are very appreciated by black iberian pigs.
