Banjh Oak is an evergreen tree bearing stalked, ovate to lancolate, tapering, sawtoothed, leathery, and dark green leaves which are hairless above and densely white or gray velvet-hairy beneath. Young leaves are pink purple in colour and the upper surface turns deep green as it matures, while the lower side is silvery grey due to the presence of white hairs (hence the name leucotrichophora, meaning "which has white hairs"). The male inflorescences (catkins) are slender and drooping spikes, borne on the tips of the branches, while the tiny round female flowers are borne at the base of the leaves. The fruits are orange-tan, marble-sized acorns. Banjh Oak is native to N. Pakistan to N. Indo-China.
