Oak comes from most of Europe.
Oak grows to about 20-25 meters high and can reach a diameter of up to 5-7 meters. They can reach the age of 400-500 years but are ripe for felling when the tree is around 120-15 years. The oak has a distinctive appearance with a smooth bark on young trees and a coarser crust bark with deep furrows on older trees.
Oak is characterized as a hard and easy to use lumber. It is very strong and has over time been used for half-timbers and ships. Oak is a good choice for a countertop as it is incredibly durable.
Oak has a beautiful golden brown color that gets a little darker with age.
