Emory oak is widespread in the lower oak zone of southern Arizona, but disappears as one heads south in Sonora. It often shares slopes with Q. oblongifolia. Q. emoryi wood is very dense and makes great firewood. The acorns are considered the best in the region for eating and are commonly sold on roadsides and markets in northern Sonora.
