Quercus marilandica , the blackjack oak , is a small oak , one of the red oak group Quercus sect. There are reports of a few isolated populations in southern Michigan , but these appear to represent introductions. Quercus marilandica is a small deciduous tree growing to 15 meters 49 feet tall, with bark cracked into rectangular black plates with narrow orange fissures. They are dark green and glossy above, pubescent underneath, and often remain attached to the twigs through the winter after turning colors from red to brown in the fall.
The blackjack oak grows in poor, thin, dry, rocky or sandy soils where few other woody plants can thrive, usually on low ground, from sea level up to approximately 2, feet meters in altitude. Some say that it does not have the beautiful form of many oaks, but is nonetheless a valuable tree for growing in problem sites.
It is sometimes an understory tree in pine stands on sandy knolls in the southeastern US. Along the coastal plain of New Jersey the probability of finding this species is increased in relatively sunny, open areas such as those near coastal salt marshes. It often occurs near scarlet and post oaks as well as pitch pine ; understory companions include winged sumac , bracken , sweetfern , and bayberry , and can be found as far north as parts of Ohio  and New York.
