Info "Quercus laurifolia is a tree growing to 65-80 feet (20-25 m) (rarely to 130 feet (40 m)) tall, with a large, circular crown. The leaves are broad lanceolate, 1-5 in (3-12 cm) long and 0.5-1.75 in (1.5-4.5 cm) broad, and unlobed (very rarely three-lobed) with an entire margin and a bristle tip; they typically fall just as the new leaves start to emerge in spring. The acorns, borne in a shallow cup, are hemispherical, 0.35-0.5 in (9-12 mm) long, green, maturing blackish-brown about 18 months after pollination."
