Fast-Growing Shade Tree

The Pin Oak, Quercus palustris, 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 tree is prized for the beauty of its symmetrical pyramid shape. Choose a sunny spot for your Pin Oak tree 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.

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 growing away from its trunk.

As beautiful as the Pin Oak tree is all summer long, autumn brings even more appeal. The Pin Oak tree 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 tree 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. Pin Oak trees remain one of the most popular Oak trees in America today.
