This species is one of the most abundant grown in the Northeastern hardwood forests. Red Oak is similar to white oak but has a slightly less pronounced figure due to the smaller rays and is mostly straight-grained, with a course texture. Red Oak machines well, can be stained to a good finish; is hard and heavy, maintains medium bending strength and stiffness, and has a high crushing strength while being wear resistant.
