Campus Nature Trail

Stop 3

point-03 turkey oak A mature Turkey Oak Quercus cerris that pre-dates the University and had the huge lower branches removed to make room for the buildings and road leaving large callused scars.

This is a non-native semi-evergreen tree distinguished by its longer and narrower glossy leaves, long whiskers around the buds and by its “hairy” acorn cups.

See further information on Turkey Oak.
