A species of oak (Quercus sessiliflora, or according to some Q. pubescens) so closely allied to the common oak (Q. Robur) as to be reckoned by some botanists only a variety of it. Its wood is, however, darker, heavier, and more elastic, less easy to split, not so easy to break, yet the least difficult to bend. It is highly valued, therefore, by the builder and the cabinet-maker.
