Description

When considering an oak tree most think its primary quality is as a shade tree. However, the scarlet oak offers a little more. This oak has a vivid red fall color and a smaller more rounded spread making it a wonderful ornamental tree for the urban and suburban settings. The fall foliage also hangs on into the winter offering some color against the white snowy backdrop. The scarlet oak also produces acorns in the fall every 2 years that attracts wildlife. Due to the size, oaks are usually planted as a specimen tree with enough room to grow.
