Oak Trees

Oaks have spirally arranged leaves, with a lobed margin in many species; some have serrated leaves or entire leaves with a smooth margin. The flowers are catkins, produced in spring. The fruit is a nut called an acorn, grown in a cup-like structure known as a cupule. Each acorn contains one seed (rarely two or three) and takes 6–18 months to mature, depending on the oak species. They are poisonous to horses & ponies when eaten. If an oak tree is on a horses pasture, it should either be removed or the horses must be monitored so they don't eat the acorns.
