Pin Oak

Fast-Growing Shade Tree

The Pin Oak is a fast-growing shade tree.  It would look great as a central focal point in your yard or near your home to provide relief from the summer sun.
The Pin Oak is prized for the beauty of its symmetrical pyramid shape.  Choose a sunny spot for your Pin Oak and you’ll be amazed how quickly it graces your home with shade and beauty.  Even if you have poor soil, the Pin Oak will thrive, and it’s tolerant of transplanting should you choose to move it. 

The Pin Oak grows up to 70 feet tall with a 40 foot spread.  You’ll love how the Pin Oak’s leaves have a larger U-shaped opening between the lobes.  This distinguishes it from other Oak trees, and gives your tree a unique appearance.  It has a dense growth habit, with a thick branches coming off its trunk. 
As beautiful as the Pin Oak is all summer long, autumn brings even more appeal.  The Pin Oak is highly prized for its brilliant fall display of red and deep-bronze color.   It’s at this time that another of the classic and valued features of the Pin Oak appears.  Reddish/brown acorns begin to drop, creating an abundant fall harvest for a variety of wildlife.  Watch as Mallard and Wood ducks take a break from their fall migration to visit your home.  Deer, wild turkeys and squirrels may also stop in to provide a show for your enjoyment.
Pin Oaks were named by farmers who used the branches to “pin together” the beams of their barns years ago.  The Pin Oak remains one of the most popular Oak trees in America today.

Pin Oak leaves Review by Nanny
I love my tree but I wish I could make it drop its leaves all at once instead of all winter long.
Favorite Oak Review by jimmyjohn
Very happy with the pin oak tree you sent me. Looking forward to watching it grow.
Pin Oak is an excellent Tree Review by Nick135
Pin Oaks are excellent trees to have and have very few pest problems!! Pin Oak trees do keep their leaves until March or April depending on where you live!! If you do not want low limbs then you have to prune the tree, the limbs do not just fall off and It is best to prune the tree up as High as you can as the tree matures!! Grass will grow under the tree if you prune your Tree lower limbs up to abt 10 to 12ft and you may in some cases have to plant fescue grass. I live in the South and we have many Pin Oak trees around here and wanted to share what i know. You can not go wrong with Having a Pin Oak Tree, just prune it up High as it matures.
Pin Oak in Western NY State Review by Bob B
We hav a beautiful specimen. It's 40 feet tall with drooping leaves and I believe it is about 8 years old (it was here when we bought the place). We will also be planting about 10 more to start anticipating the Ash Borer coming as most of our 5 acres of woods are Ash. We also have a pond. I am not bothered by the low limbs nor the no gras below the tree both of which we have. It is doubtless the nicest tree on the place!
Arborist Review by Tim Hinebaugh
The pin oak is a very good tree, but its limitations need to be known. It grows quickly and has a beautiful oval form. It WILL require maintenance to keep the lower limbs pruned for clearance. Pin oaks do NOT shed their deadwood quickly, so the interior branches that die will need to be periodically removed (for appearance). There is a tendency to develop tight forks with included bark. These forks are likely to split in ice storms or high wind. Despite these drawbacks, though, I do not hesitate to plant a pin oak if a customer wants a fast growing, but sturdy tree with a graceful form.
