roble


Explanation:
You could use árbol de roble, but it is not very common. Another use (depending on the context), would be madera de roble o madera del árbol de roble. Saludos de Jaime

roble o encino


Explanation:
I would use "madera de encino para hablar de muebles" o un "roble" if you are talking about a living tree as a reference.

Translation from The New World Spanish/English Dictionary:
Oak tree= roble, encino. From Oceano Uno Diccionario description in "Spanish" Encino Arbol de la familia fagaceas; tiene por fruto bellotas y su madera es muy dura y muy compacta. Utilizada en las embarcaciones por su resistencia a la humedad.
