Quercus pedunculiflora
Grayish oak

Grayish oak (Quercus pedunculiflora) is medium-sized deciduous tree, often considered an adapted or hybridized race of pedunculate oak (Quercus robur). Its natural distribution ranges from south-eastern Europe to western Asia, on altitudes up to 1800 m.

Grayish oak is a hardy species, able to grow on many different soils. Given its resistance to drought, the tree is likely to be an important species for forestry in the future, particularly in the face of climate change. Despite its drought-tolerance, the tree is often found in floodplain forests and along rivers and streams.
