Oak - Northern Red #5 Pot
The Northern Red Oak has branches and upper trunk are marked with long, light grey longitudinal lines which remind some people of ski trails. Open grown trees form a rounded crown which makes a nice shade, park or street tree. Many communities use Red Oak as a street tree where overhead space is not limiting. Acorns are small and easily cleaned up, broken into small pieces by pedestrians or eaten by squirrels. The foliage turns a wonderful dark red in the fall. An adaptable, widely planted Oak with a rapid growth rate, Red Oak will reach a height of 60 to 70 feet and a spread of 40 to 60 feet when open-grown, and is native to rich woodland areas where it will grow to 90 feet tall..
