Question: How many species or varieties of oak trees are there?

Answer: True oaks, from the genus Quercus (part of the beech family), can be separated into three groups: white, red, and black. Many plants often called oaks aren’t from this genus. These include African oak, Australian oak, bull oak, Jerusalem oak, poison oak, river oak, she-oak, silky oak, tanbark oak, Tasmanian oak, and tulip oak.
