This tree can be used as a singular tree in a garden, for reforestation or cultivated as a bonsai. Its wood is used as firewood. It produces an excellent quality coal. Railroad ties are made from its wood too. It is a rare species which can be in danger as logging can make it disappear.
It is different from the other oak trees because the cracks of its leaves are deeper and its peduncle is shorter.
It prefers smooth, sandy and clay soils. It is found on the slopes and sides of the mountains.
Dig a hole at least two or three times as wide and deep as the root ball. Take out the plant from the container and loosen roots to allow them to spread out in all direction. Cut possible broken roots. Mix the soil extracted with a substrate and fill part of the hole with the mixture obtained. Place the plant in the hole and cover with the remaining mixture. Compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.
