California White Oak is found in the valley areas of California. It grows in the fertile valley soil, and is a very large tree. The color tends to be more brown/tan than red oak and is a little harder. The colors and knots have more swirls and blend a little more delicately. The grain is more open and prominent. We offer four grades of White Oak Flooring: Clear, Select, Run of the Mill (ROM) and #2 Common.
