|Tree||Quercus coccinea Scarlet Oak||
|Description||A highly ornamental, fast-growing, deciduous Oak which has an open, wide spreading habit. It is more rounded than Pin Oak with larger foliage showcasing a brilliant display of colour in autumn when the leaves turn an intensely vivid scarlet colour before falling. Spring sees glossy green, deeply lobed new foliage and acorns produced can take up to two years to mature starting off green and turning pale brown with a deep cap covering them by half. Young bark is relatively smooth and grey, darkening with maturity.|
|Mature Size||12 x 8m|
|Uses||A great feature tree. Can also be used in street plantings and in parks and gardens. The trunk has a tendency to flare out at the base, so a good amount of space is recommended. Overall, this oak makes an excellent shade tree.|
|Position & Soil||Tolerates most soils in a full sun position. Is known to adapt well to a variety of sites, performing particularly well in drier sites with sandy soils.|
