Description: The hardiest of the oaks, this shade tree is singularly majestic, with its picturesque wide-spreading habit of growth and gnarled branches; extremely tough and adaptable.

Ornamental Features: Has dark green foliage throughout the season. The glossy lobed leaves turn coppery-bronze in fall. The furrowed black bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape.

Landscape Attributes: Is a dense deciduous tree with a more or less rounded form. Best pruned in late winter. It is a good choice for attracting squirrels to your yard.

(Trees, Shrubs and Perennials labelled Zone 2 or 3 are consistently hardy enough to survive in Calgary, Okotoks and surrounding areas)
