Pin Oak (Quercus palustris). This large Pin Oak produces small acorns every autumn. Acorns provide an important food source for many animals, including turkeys, squirrels, deer, and black bears. In some areas oaks are declining because of the foraging on acorns. They are being consumed before they have the chance to grow into young trees.
