A scraggly little oak that gets little notice

scrubJust snapped this because it reminded me that bear — or scrub — oak is everywhere and I bet a lot of people don’t kiniow about it. It’s the scrubby, ugly looking little oak that tends to line a lot of trails and fields. It can grow in seemingly endless rows and seemingly never get higher than about 8 feet. Heard it was called bear oak because the acorns are so bitter only bears with eat then.

Easy to id by the bristle tips on the leaves.
