Oak (Black)

Quercus velutina

A common tree in the Appalachian forests, Black Oak is a rare find in nurseries and, unfortunately, is seldom planted. With its rich, glossy foliage, Black Oak is possibly the best shade tree in the Red Oak group.The bold, dark structure of the tree in the dormant season makes it a valuable addition to the winter landscape, especially after a snowfall. Black Oak is more tolerant than Red Oak of urban growing conditions and is also resistant to Oak Wilt and Bacterial Leaf Scorch. It grows 60'-80' high and 30'-40' wide.
