The following is a list of English terms related to oaks.

These are trees and treelike shrubs in the genus Quercus, and many are known for their massive, spreading habit and sturdy wood. They are also known for their characteristic nuts called acorns, at one time a very important food- though most require special preparation.

Many languages recognize two main types: those with flat, deciduous leaves, and those with curled, often prickly, evergreen leaves (live oaks).[edit description][edit parents]
