Oak (Black)

Quercus velutina

A common tree in the Appalachian forests, Black Oak is a rare find in nurseries and unfortunately, seldom planted. With its rich, glossy foliage, it 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 of Red Oak to urban growing conditions. Also resistant to Oak Wilt and Bacterial Leaf Scorch. 60'-80' high and 30'-40' wide.
