Oak : Where Does Oak Come From?

The Oak we supply is sourced from three different places:

  • America
  • Mainland Europe
  • England

European and English Oaks are rather similar to each other whereas the American Oak is quite a bit different.


American White Oaks (Quercus alba) range across America and Canada from Quebec and Ontario to Eastern Minnesota and Iowa. They have spread out towards the Atlantics and through the Allegheny and Appalachian Mountains.

European Oak (Quercus petraea) trees grow across Europe though France, Germany Croatia, Poland and many more countries and is one of the dominant species on the planet. Through travel and distribution European Oaks have been growing in Asia Minor and Northern Africa.

The European timber is used to supply oak wood flooring, cladding, skirting and beams.

English Oak (Quercus robur) trees grow across England and is the most common woodland tree in the country.
