Red Oak (Quercus rubra)
Potted saplings. 90 - 120 cm height. 2 gallon. Price per tree.
The red oak is usually 20 to 30 metres tall, with a thick trunk sometimes more than 120 centimetres in diameter. Its leaves are dark green and have sharp, pointed lobes (usually 7 to 9) with bristly tips. Acorns from the red oak are 2 to 3 centimetres long and are round with a scaly cap that covers less than ¼ of the acorn. The bark of the red oak is smooth and dark gray when the tree is young, but deep ridges develop as the tree gets older. SOURCE: Government of Ontario
