A sought-after species for lumber purposes.

Impressive leaves shaped like a pagoda ( note the the name). Considered to be a variant of the southern red oak. Native to only a tiny little corner of the FL panhandle plus it looks like a low elevation tree for the rest of the southern states.

Not very shade tolerant.
