Oak trees are most commonly grown in the Northern Hemisphere, usually in North America, Europe, and parts of Asia. There are approximately 600 different species of oak trees that grow as both deciduous and evergreen plants. Oak serves well for a building material because of its high density and natural resistance to insects and fungus diseases due to its high tannin content.
