Shumard oak

Quercus shumardii

Shumard oak is a medium sized, deciduous tree in the red oak group. It performs well in full sunaverage soil and tolerates a variety of moisture conditions.  Pyramidal in youth but spreads to a broad open crown with age. It grows at a moderately fast rate and features shiny, dark green leaves with deep, spiny lobes. Fall color appears late and is a respectable brownish red.  Acorns are not usually produced until the tree has reached the age of 25 years.
