Long lived and majestic, English Oak (Common Oak/European Oak) is a large deciduous tree adorned with a magnificent, broad spreading crown. The foliage of 3-7 lobed, rich blue green leaves turns reddish brown in the fall. Inconspicuous yellow green catkins appear in spring as the leaves emerge. The short trunk and upright branches, with their ridged and furrowed dark gray bark, provide architectural elegance and winter interest. Its oval acorns are a valuable source of food for mammals and small birds. Robust and sturdy, it is an excellent specimen tree for large areas. Grow in full sun, in moist but well drained soil, drought tolerant. Grows to heights of 60 feet with a spread of 40-60 feet.
