White Oak Wood Characteristics
Wood from the White Oak tree produces a highly rot resistant, durable wood. It has a straight grain with a course, uneven texture. The heartwood is usually a light or medium brown with olive tones. While Red Oak wood is usually more red in appearance, that’s not the most effective way to tell the two apart.
