The Caucasian Oak features a broad, rounded canopy of deeply lobed, dark green leaves that turn to striking shades of red, orange, or brown in the fall, creating a captivating display of autumn foliage. It produces acorns that serve as an important food source for wildlife, including birds and mammals. With its resilience, adaptability to various soils, and ecological significance, Quercus robur subsp. pedunculiflora is a sought-after choice for parks, landscapes, and reforestation efforts in regions with similar climates.
