The stately white oak, the Maryland State Tree, can be found throughout the state in a variety of habitats. Its size and appearance vary depending on where you find it. Large white oaks are often found growing on old farms and estates. These trees usually develop very large trunks with broad, impressive crowns although often no more than 80 or 90 feet in height.
Deep forest white oak trunks often lack impressive circumference as the trees are putting more energy into climbing up to reach sunlight. These trees can be 125 feet tall as are seen along Lake Roland’s Green Trail Airtable – Tree Listings on Website. The park’s largest white oak is at the juncture of the Red & Orange Trails: Airtable – Tree Listings on Website
