NORTHERN RED OAK (Quercus rubra) -

An adaptable, widely planted Oak with a rapid growth rate. Red Oak will reach a height of 60 to 70 feet and a spread of 40 to 60 feet when open-grown, and is native to rich woodland areas where it will grow to 90 feet tall. Branches and upper truck are marked with long, light gray longitudinal lines, which remind some people of ski trails. Open-grown trees form a rounded crown, which makes a nice shade, park or street tree. Man communities use Red Oak as a street tree when overhead space is not limiting. Acorns are small and easily cleaned up, broken into small pieces by pedestrians or eaten by squirrels. The foliage turns a wonderful dark red in the fall.
