Plant Details: Nuttall Oak
4 - 8
Quercus nuttallii is the fastest growing member of the Red Oak family and has become popular as a city landscape tree. It performs best in rich moist bottom lands and flood plains. Consistent moisture is required for fastest growth which can attain 2-3" per year. Not to shabby for an Quercus species in the red Group. A tall more narrow crowned species can reach 125' high x 60'wide. The high canopy is a plus for many landscapes that this species offers. Excellent fall red color most years. One of its unique characteristics is that its acorns will stay on the tree late into the winter making it is an especially good tree to provide late winter food for ducks or deer.
