Fast-Growing Shade Tree

The Northern Red Oak, Quercus ruba, is a long-lived tree and one of the fastest-growing Oaks.  It would be a perfect shade tree for your yard.
 
There’s nothing quite as peaceful as whiling away a few hot summer hours under the cool shade  of an Oak tree, and the Northern Red Oak would be a perfect choice for doing just that.
 
Imagine sitting under your Red Oak.  Tilt your head back to view the straight and true trunk that grows to a height of up to 75 or more. See how the branches reach toward the sky in a spreading form that creates a pleasing rounded crown.  Notice the dark green leaves as they gently rustle in the breeze, their 8 inch, wide-lobed surface filtering the sunlight above you.
 
In the autumn you’ll still enjoy sitting under your Red Oak amid the deep reds and yellows of its fall foliage.  If you sit very still, you’ll even share in the excitement of neighborhood squirrels and other wildlife that come to collect the 1-inch acorns your Red Oak generously produces for them.
 
In the spring 2-4 inch green catkins will appear on your Red Oak as flowers to announce the coming of another growing season to enjoy…and all the charming features of your Red Oak will begin again.
 
The Northern Red Oak is an important source of food for wildlife.  A variety of birds depend upon Red Oak acorns, the wild turkey in particular.  Several mammals also value the Red Oak acorn, including the Black Bear. You will likewise value the Northern Red Oak for all it has to offer.
