The ancient Lation word quercus, probably of Celtic origin, means "beautiful tree"; rubra means "red"; borealis means "northern." In Red Oaks as opposed to White, the lobes of the leaves are pointed and the acors mature in the second year.
Squirrels and other animals eschew these acorns because of their bitter taste and so, ironically, there are always multitudes left over to germinate and sprout ever more Northern Oak saplings that will in turn have many more bitter-tasting acorns.
California Black Oak (Quercus kelloggii) has a short trunk and rounded crown, and its one-inch acorns are ellipsoidal, with the cup covering one-third of the acorn.
