Turbinella Oaks are most common in the upper Mojave above 4000 feet. Early desert dwellers ground the acorns from the trees into a fine flour. Squirrels store the nuts for food during the winter. The tree is also home to a small wasp which builds a small section called a gall on the branches and lays her eggs inside.
