A stately, strong, and long-lived tree with beautiful fall color, the Shumard oak is a great selection for yards. This adaptable species has been successfully grown in urban areas where air pollution, poor drainage, compacted soil, and/or drought are common, making it a fine choice for street trees as well. Deer and squirrel also love its small acorns.

The Shumard oak features deciduous leaves that are 4”-8” long and deeply-lobed, with bristles on the tips of some lobes. It produces brown or greenish catkins in the spring. It also yields egg-shaped acorns that are 1” in length and enclosed at the base in a thick, flat, saucer-shaped cup. The acorns are produced every 2-4 years.
