Northern Red Oak Tree

Alternative Views:

The Northern Red Oak tree, Quercus rubra, is one of the best and most important lumber trees, because of the hardness and beautiful grained wood that is so often used inside the home.  For brilliant red foliage in the fall, the Northern Red Oak is an important shade tree, and the huge leaves can grow to 10 inches long with 7 to 9 pointed lobes.  This shade tree grows very tall to 130 feet, with a straight trunk that is just right for use as an urban shade tree in recreational areas or shopping malls, and the expected growth of 2 feet per year is considered to be fast growing for Oaks.  The trees are very cold hardy and grow extensively from MN to Georgia and Westward to Texas.  The acorns require 2 years to mature and taste bitter to humans.   The Northern Red Oak tree acorns are good food plot choices for attracting and feeding wildlife animals like deer and game birds.  The Northern Red Oak tree is the State Tree of New Jersey.

4 of 5 Northern Red Oak tree purchase June 13, 2019
Reviewer: Paul Blackhurst from Lawrenceburg , KY United States  
I purchased 3 northern red oaks. They were planted the day they arrived in the mail.  Two are doing great and one did not even push out leaves from the buds.  All three planted in same soil and experienced the same weather/water conditions.
