May 29 - Willow Oak - Quercus phellos

Quercus phellos - The Willow Oak  

The Willow Oak is similar to the other willows; however, easy to distinguish from the others by the acorns and bristle tips on the end of the leaves.

Many birds and small mammals depend on the acorns of this tree for food throughout the winter.
