Quercus palustris

Pin Oak

A fast growing deciduous tree with shiny, deeply lobed dark green leaves. In autumn, foliage turns bronze with occasional red coloured leaves and tends to stay attached to the shoots until the new spring growth begins. Conical in shape, it has a strong leader which over time develops a loose spreading canopy. The bark of the young tree is smooth, but by middle age develops more texture. As the tree matures, it forms a distinctive structure whereby upper branches point upwards, middle branches are horizontal and lower branches droop. Another distinctive characteristic of this tree are the pin oak branches which can remain on the tree for many years.
