Quercus rubra

The Red Oak is a classic American tree.  This oak is a solid, long lived tree with strong trunks and branches. This tall tree offers a dense crown making it an ideal shade tree.  The leaves turn reddish-orange for a brilliant display of color in autumn.  While at home in the wild, this tree will also do well as a street tree in the urban setting.  It has good tolerance for pollution and compacted soil as well as light to moderate drought conditions.  The Red oak produces an acorn that many types of wildlife enjoy.
