small slow-growing deciduous shrubby tree of dry sandy barrens of southeastern United States having leaves with bristle-tipped lobes resembling turkey's toes
small semi-evergreen shrubby tree of southeastern United States having hairy young branchlets and leaves narrowing to a slender bristly point
large round-topped deciduous tree with spreading branches having narrow falcate leaves with deeply sinuate lobes and wood similar to that of northern red oaks; New Jersey to Illinois and southward
large deciduous tree of central and southern Europe and Asia Minor having oblong-lanceolate leaves with spiked lobes
Quercus laevis ) The leaves of this relatively small tree are thick, rigid and heavily veined, bright yellow-green lustrous above and somewhat paler below. They are deeply divided into 3 or five lobes. Rarely there are seven lobes on a turkey oak leaf ( Figure 17 ). Lobes may be toothed and the tip is usually 3-toothed. The underside of the leaf may show tufts of rusty-red axillary hairs. Petioles are generally twisted, allowing the leaf to sit perpendicular to the ground, reducing surface area exposed to the drying sunlight of its sandhill habitat.
