Red Oak, Quercus Rubra


The sharply and heavily lobed dark-green foliage of Quercus rubra turns wonderful shades of red with hints of yellow and bronze in the autumn.

It is commonly known as the Red Oak tree due to this autumn display.

Spring catkins are a source of nectar for bees and once pollinated, become the easily recognised acorns which are popular with wildlife, such as squirrels.
