Also on the North American continent, the oak tree is widely represented by more than 90 different species. Especially the large white oak is highly sought after in the construction and furniture industry due to its hardness which makes it waterproof and prevents rot. The frigate USS Constitution, launched in 1797, was built precisely in white oak and was thus more resistant to cannonballs. Also, wine and whiskey are perfectly aged and matured perfectly due to the structure and hardness of the wood.
