The most common oak in northern New England. Typically a single large trunk dividing into several large ascending spreading branches. While the branches are not as massive as some of the other oaks, its open rounded crown is magnificent. The trunk is a deep grey textured web of surfaces overlaid one upon another. Sharply toothed foliage turns orange-tan during apple season.
Fast growing, up to 2' per year. Prefers well-drained sandy slightly acid soils; red oaks we planted in shallow ledgy ground are thriving. Tolerates shade, compacted soil, salt, pollution and other urban conditions. Native to eastern North America. Z4. (1–3' bare-root trees)
