Eastern Red Oak
The Eastern Red Oak tree, Quercus maxima, is a hardwood tree that you can recognize by its pointy-lobed leaves with prickly tips. In autumn these leaves turn a vibrant red, adding bursts of color to landscapes!
This deciduous tree produces many acorns and is a great provider of food for wildlife. The tree is very similar to the Northern Red Oak and is sometimes called a Northern Red Oak.
It grows rapidly for an Oak tree and is widely adaptable to moisture and soil types.
Its wood is heavy, hard, strong, coarse-grained, and quite durable. Moderate to fast growing, this tree is easily transplanted and has become a popular shade tree because of its good form and dense foliage!
