Strong and venerable, oak is the national tree of the United States for good reason. Glossy green leaves form a dense canopy and provide excellent shade. Moderate to slow growing, oaks make for a sturdy, long-lasting addition to the landscape.

Deeply furrowed bark and interesting branching patterns give oaks year-round beauty. Some varieties, most notably the pin oak, will hold leaves through the winter, lending bronze-brown color to an otherwise bleak landscape. Red oaks and pin oaks possess excellent deep red fall colors, while most other varieties will be yellow-brown.

Oaks prefer sandy-loamy soils with adequate drainage and moderate moisture, though they will tolerate poor drainage and drought. Plant in full sun with plenty of room to accommodate mature size.
