Quercus acerifolia (also called maple-leaved oak) is a rare North American species of trees in the beech family. It is endemic to the Ozark Mountains of the State of Arkansas in the south-central United States.
The epithet acerifolia means "maple-leaved." The venation of the leaves shows them to be technically pinnately 5-lobed but with the two middle lobes larger than the other three. This makes the leaves appear palmately lobed at first glance, similar to many maples leaves. Quercus acerifolia is a tree sometimes reaching a height of 15 meters (50 feet).
