Botanical Name Quercus imbricaria
Description Quercus imbricaria is a large species of Red Oak that appears to look like a member of the White Oak group. It is an ideal landscape tree and develops a rounded canopy for shade with linear leaves are a little larger than the willow oak which turn a golden yellow in the fall. Shingle Oak produces small oblong acorns that are a favorite of wildlife. This fast growing oak was sought after by early settlers because of its straight grain that would split evenly for wood shingles.
Notes
