Wikipedia There is more information available on this subject at Oak Tree on the English Wikipedia.

Oak is a term used to refer to around four-hundred separate species in the genus Quercus (Latin for "Oak Tree"), native to the northern Hemisphere of Earth. The White Oak is a notable member of the genus. Historically, they have been used in a variety of ways, from ship building to wine aging, and when Humanity began colonizing and terraforming other planets, Oak trees were one of the many non-native species introduced to alien worlds.

In the Halo UniverseEdit

Oak wood was considered very rare on the human colony of Madrigal. Because of this, Ignatio Delgado's uncle carved a modified stock for his prized weapon, Señora Sies, out of the wood.[1]
