Shumard Oak

Quercus shumardii

This large tree is both ornamental and an excellent shade tree.  It has a very upright habit and grows faster than many oaks once established.  The distinctive, deep cut leaves can turn red to reddish-brown in the fall.  It is a durable and long-lived tree.  It tolerates a wide range of conditions and soils, including wet soils and drought. It doesn’t begin producing acorns until it’s about 25 years of age.
