RED OAK, QUERCUS RUBRA
H – 70′, W – 70’, Z – 3b
A beautiful and artistic shade tree with a picturesque loosely pyramidal habit of growth and good red fall color; fast growing for an oak, an extremely tough and adaptable tree, best for larger landscapes; prefers loose, slightly acidic soils. Red Oak has dark green foliage, which emerges rose in spring. The spiny lobed leaves turn an outstanding Indian red in the fall.
