About Leather Oak
Leather Oak (Quercus dorata) is a shrub-like evergreen, growing 3–10 feet tall throughout California’s Klamath and Coast Ranges, as well as in the lower reaches of the Sierra Nevada. Though small, Leather Oak’s smooth, gray branches are intricately and beautifully laced beneath a rounded, tangled canopy. Leaves are convex to the point of curling, leathery, oblong to elliptical, and anywhere from 0.5–1.25 inches long, coming to a sharp point at their tips. Acorns are stoutly egg-shaped and can reach 1 inch in length. This is a great tree for anyone drawn to the oak form but short on space.
