Hi Tahir,

Cork Oaks grow really well down here in Hampshire and don't seem to have been 
significantly affected by the softy cold winters we've had recently. I'm not 
particularly familiar with your neck of the woods, so I'd advise asking 
locally and at least avoid any known frost pockets.
You might want to consider one of the hybrid Oaks. I remember some lovely 
Quercus x hispanica, a hybrid between Cork Oak and Holm Oak, from my time at 
the parks department in Nottingham. 

Best regards,
Bill

I don't think so, not till we've got a proper sheltered garden, we're still 
losing all sorts of trees with the winters we're having, this winter's 
losses:

several figs
persimmons (kaki and virginiana)
pawpaw (asimina triloba)
a couple of mulberries

Having said that I have no idea how hardy the cork oak is...
