    Genus of about 600 species of monoecious, semi-deciduous or evergreen trees and shrubs, widely distributed in woodlands and scrublands of the Northern Hemisphere. Quercus macranthera is a large deciduous tree up to 25 m tall with a majestic appearance and expanded foliage in isolated specimens. This species is widespread in the Caucasus and northern Iran. Mature plants have thick gray-brown bark. The dark green leaves are generally obovate with rounded lobes. The brown acorns are 2/4 cm long and have a thin, not very enveloping dome.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    It adapts to all types of soil, preferring fresh and deep ones. It requires sunny positions and adequate space, as it is a large tree. Rustic species, it resists cold and even intense and prolonged frosts down to -20°/-22°c. This species is also drought tolerant, withstanding dry soil and hot, dry summers.

    Sowing

    From autumn to early winter. The seeds are recalcitrant: they cannot be stored for long and quickly lose germination. They should be sown immediately after receiving them.
