Algerian Oak

Quercus canariensis

The Algerian Oak is found throughout the Mediterranean basin, forming a broad canopy of evergreen lobed leaves, similar to the English Oak but significantly more heat and drought tolerant. Semi-deciduous in cooler climates. A fire-resistant tree that can be planted as a future wind and fire break, and enjoyed as a glorious summer shade tree. In our experience, this tree grows rapidly to 12m before slowing. Medium growth rate overall.
