The Mount Tabor oak is a tree in the beech family and is found across southeastern Europe and southwestern Asia. It is a medium-sized semi-evergreen that grows to a height of about 15 meters.

Mount Tabor oak trees flower each year in March or April with light green blossoms and produce oval acorns that take about 18 months to mature.
