This is an adaptable tree with a rugged texture. The bark has a cork-like texture which is especially noticeable when the tree is young. Summer foliage is a rich green. Fall color is a warm brown. The winter outline is bold and open.
This is a superb specimen tree. And tough. Burr Oak tolerates acidic and alkaline soils. It also handles both poorly drained and dry soils with relative ease and makes a good urban tree if given enough space. And talking about space, give it plenty. It can last for centuries and get quite large. This is one of those legacy trees; we plant it with the knowledge that our children and grandchildren will receive more benefits from it than we will. And that's okay. Tree planting is all about giving, not getting.
