Highly Sought After for Deep Red Fall Color

The Red Oak tree, Quercus rubra, also is commonly called a Champion Oak. This majestic shade tree is known for growing tall, being strong, and for having a long life span, up to 500 years! 

It is also known for having valuable, open-grained hardwood and for its brilliant fall color.  The mature form of the Red Oak tree is rounded and symmetrical, giving the appearance of being manicured without the work.

New bristle-tipped leaves will emerge with a handsome reddish tinge in the spring.  When the tree is young, the bark will be smooth and sage-brown (or gray), but will mature to a darker gray (and eventually to black).

One of the most sought after features of this tree is the brilliant showing of deep crimson leaves in the fall.  In addition, the acorns that this tree produces provide food for wildlife.  For best results, plant it in an area with a moderate water supply and good drainage.

Often planted as a shade tree in yards, parks and along neighborhood streets, this tough tree can take a lot in the form of pollution and salty, alkaline or compacted soil!
