(Quercus fagaceae) White oak has tyloses that give the wood a closed cellular structure, making it water-and rot-resistant. Because of this characteristic, white oak is used by coopers to make wine and whiskey barrels as the wood resists leaking. It has also been used in construction, shipbuilding, agricultural implements, and in the interior finishing of houses.
