Red oak (binomial name Quercus rubra) also known as northern red oak or champion oak is an oak in the red oak group (Quercus section Lobatae). It is a native of North America, in the northeastern United States and southeast Canada.[1]

WandloreEdit

It may often be heard of the ignorant that red oak is an infallible sign of its owner’s hot temper. In fact, the true match for a red oak wand is possessed of unusually fast reactions, making it a perfect duelling wand.[2]

Less common than English oak, Garrick Ollivander found that its ideal master is light of touch, quick-witted and adaptable, often the creator of distinctive, trademark spells, and a good man or woman to have beside one in a fight. He also believed them to make for some of the most handsome wands.[2]
