The oaks (Quercus) are a plant genus in the family of the beech. They are easily recognized by their typical fruit, the acorn. The pioneer trees have a long history and are closely associated with us humans. In Germany, the Germanic tribes already regarded the oak as a sign of immortality and steadfastness because of its hard wood and the very late falling leaves. At the time of Romanticism it was above all a symbol of loyalty. In view of the long-lasting, stable wood, this term probably applies best. In material and professional processing, this wood is used to create faithful furniture that can be passed on over many generations.
