Hungarian Oak

Image result for hungary flag

99-14   There are several interesting oaks found in Romania, Hungary, and adjacent areas of southern and eastern Europe. One of the rarest is the Hungarian oak (Quercus dalechampii), which is closely related to two other oaks, petraea and Q. polycarpa. All of them can be found growing together in some diverse forests such as Forest Bejan in western Transylvania. We have several of these Hungarian oak trees here at Oak Ridge Cemetery, planted in 1999 from seed collected a few years earlier near Tokaj in eastern Hungary. They are well adapted to our area and have proven to be strong, vigorous trees.
