Botanical Name Quercus coccinea
Description Scarlet Oak has the most colorful fall foliage of any of the oaks, its bright scarlet leaves can be seen in the woods into early winter. It is drought tolerant except for when long, severe droughts hit they may become susceptible to dehydration and even death. I would recommend all trees be supplementary watered under severe drought conditions. A wonderful shade tree with brilliant red fall color which gives it Latin species name coccinea. Scarlet oak matures to approximately 60'High x 40'Wide. Under utilized in the landscaping industry.
