Quercus ‘Pin Oak Tree’


Quercus palustris 

Pin Oak is a fast growing, large tree that is noted for its distinctive shape: the lower branches tend to drop down, the middle branches are fairly horizontal, whilst the upper branches are upright. During spring and summer the beautifully shaped, 5-7 lobed leaves, with a distinctive soft pin-like tip on the ends, will be a lovely glossy, dark green. Autumn will see the graduation into delightful shades of red and bronze with the added bonus of holding the leaves for many weeks, making it a great choice for the larger garden.
