Quercus, commonly known as oak, is a genus of trees and shrubs in the beech family, and is one of the most widespread and recognizable tree species in the world, with more than 600 species found in temperate and subtropical regions across the globe. Oaks are long-lived trees that can reach heights of up to 100 feet (30 meters) and live for hundreds of years, and are important sources of food for wildlife, providing acorns as well as shelter from predators. They also provide valuable timber for furniture making and construction purposes. Quercus has been used medicinally since ancient times to treat conditions such as fever, digestive issues, skin diseases, wounds, and more recently cancer. The bark has been used to make dyes for fabrics while its leaves have been used to produce tannins which are used in leather tanning processes, and is an important part of many ecosystems around the world due to its ability to store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere which helps reduce global warming effects on our planet.
