This is a medium sized oak up to 40 feet from an originally small range in Val Verde County. The Mexican White Oak has been spread across the area as a high desirable landscape tree. It propagates readily from its acorns and provides excellent shade. As a member of the White Oak family, it is resistant (but not immune) to oak wilt. This is a highly desirable tree that should be considered by anyone considering a Live Oak since it is also evergreen.
