Coloring Page: Common Ohio Trees | White Oak

All, Coloring Pages, Parks at Home

We’re giving you some fun coloring activities! Our next coloring page theme is common Ohio trees. Can you name what trees we’re featuring just by looking at them?

Even though today’s tree is named white oak (Quercus alba), typical specimens of Quercus alba have light gray bark.

White oaks produce acorns, which are the main food source for many animals including turkeys, wood ducks, nuthatches, squirrels and deer, among others. White oaks don’t produce acorns until around their fiftieth year, sometimes producing 10,000 acorns annually!
