Pretty much the only Oak found in the Adirondacks is Red Oak, White Oak doesn't tolerate the cold temps as well as Red Oak. There are many areas in the Adirondacks that do have large stands of Oak outside of the higher elevations. Off the Benson Road in Northville has a large stand of Oak, the Speculator Area has large stands of Oak, even hills named "Oak Hill" for that reason. These are a few locations that I am familiar with.
