American Red Oak

Quercus rubra

Like most oak trees, American Red Oak grows well in deep well-drained soils. Oaks do not tolerate a lot of shade and prefers open situations.

The leaves of American Red Oak trees turn a vibrant red colour in the autumn, especially when the tree is young.  American Red Oak is often planted in commercial plantations for diversity and ornamental value.

Maximum height 115ft (35m).
