Turkey oak is a really interesting species of oak from southern and southeastern Europe. It occurs there mainly in mixed deciduous forests. Quercus cerris loves warm and full sun locations with deep soils. It can also handle prolonged drought very well.
It also tolerates partial shade and can hold its own against competitive vegetation.
Their robustness with regard to harmful insects and fungi is particularly striking. So an infestation can only be observed very rarely.
Wood quality and use, as well as cultivation management is comparable to that of the English oak.
