Northern Red Oak is a type of oak tree native to
North America, often found in the eastern United
States. The trees can grow up to 141 feet tall and can
get a trunk up to 6.6 feet in diameter.

furniture manufacturers. It is considered a hardwood
lumber. It features a close-grain look and is great for
