Fast-Growing Shade Tree 

Shumard Oak, Quercus shumardii, is one of the fastest growing Red Oaks. It’s a deciduous shade tree loved by wildlife and would look great in a front or side yard to shield your home from the summer sun.  

Shumard Oak Trees can reach 90 feet at maturity with a 60 foot spread, providing you with an outstanding shade tree in a fraction of the time that most Red Oaks would require.  The 4-8 inches pointed, deep-lobed leaves are shiny and dark green, filling out the coarse, rounded crown.   

Planting a Shumard Oak Tree provides you with an impressive shade tree, but the Shumard Oak has even more to offer you. 

As your tree ages, 1-inch acorns will be an added benefit of your tree.  You can sit back and watch the show as these acorns, particularly loved by wildlife, provide a meal for your nature neighbors. 

If you prefer to not share the harvest from your Shumard Oak Tree, simply remove the tannins from your acorns and they can be eaten raw or ground for use as a flour or coffee.   

As autumn approaches, your Shumard Oak Tree will put on a brilliant show of reds and oranges to finish out the season.   

Long-lived and hardy, the Shumard Oak Tree is an excellent choice for your landscape.  It will provide you with years of shade, color and an edible harvest for your entire family to enjoy.

Fire Tree Review by THIS
This tree appears to be on fire in the fall. I installed some exterior lighting under the tree and at night the colors are awesome at night in the fall.
Good for wildlife! Review by DONNA
I am searching for trees that are good for wildlife!
Fall Color Review by Old Matt
I feel that the Shumard Oak is underrated with its fall color. It certainly brightens our yard.
Beautiful tree Review by Daffy
I love watching the squirrels eat the acorns off my Shumard Oak. If you like watching wildlife plant this tree.
Excellent Tree Review by NJP
We planted this tree in the spring, in full sun, in the front yard. It has grown almost 2 feet now. The fall color is the best and the leaves just don't fall off. So glad we planted this tree. We also gave it some store bought tree fertilizer/booster/anti bug as it was planted. A japanese beatle started to chew on it but the anti bug we gave it in the spring, got rid of that, only 1/2 leaf was laced. Negative? I can't think of anything, but it does take a lot of room. We also put up hardward cloth, 4 feet high, to keep the deer away. If we had a larger yard, we would plant another.
