Quercus trojana
Macedonian oak

Macedonian oak (Quercus trojana) is a small, fast-growing tree recognizable due to its semi-evergreen, serrated and leathery leaves. Its scattered distribution ranges from southern areas of Italy through the Balkan Peninsula, extending east toward Asia Minor.

The Macedonian oak is mainly found on moist, calcareous soils, but the tree is hardy and able to grow on various soil types. It can withstand low temperatures but requires abundant light. It usually occurs at altitudes between 200-400 m, in mixed stands with other oak species.
