How to use "Cow oak" in context?

Cow oak (Quercus ilicifolia) is a tree found primarily in the Southeastern United States. The tree is common across much of the lower Mississippi Valley and Gulf Coastal Plain, and extends into portions of Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas. Outside of its natural range, the tree has also been introduced to central British Columbia and eastern Alberta.

The tree is notable for its large acorns, which can measure up to 3 inches (7.6 cm) long and 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) wide. The nuts are an important food source for mammals, including deer, pigs, and even humans.
