Plant Details: Shingle Oak
4 - 8
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.
We expect to have the 1 gal. size available Fall 2013. These will be from the farthest known southeastern population.
