General tree description
Quercus frainetto is a large tree - it can be over 30 metres tall - with a broad crown and fissured, pale/purplish grey bark. It has large obovate leaves, up to 25 cm long, and divided into 6 to 10 very deep parallel lobes which may be divided into sublobes. The leaves are widest close to the apex. They are initially light yellow green in colour but turn turn rich dark green by the beginning of summer. The upper surface has a rough texture and the underside is grey-green and downy. The acorns are egg shaped, 15–35 mm long, and in a cup covered with russet hairs.
This tree is not common and is described in the Tree Register Handbook (2011) as "rather occasional", where occasional is defined as "individuals in many large gardens or towns but more generally absent".
