Oak / Quercus

Oaks (Quercus) are large and impressive trees that live to a great age.  Oaks are used as ornamental landscape trees and can provide wonderful summer shade.  Oaks have fruits (acorns) and simple leaves, though often finely and deeply lobed, with a few turning to spectacular tones of red or yellow-brown in autumn.

Cultivation: Oaks grow well in deep, alluvial valley soils or other fertile soils.  Most are frost hardy.  Light shade to full sun.
