Quercus rubra

Northern red oak

Quercus rubra is a native oak which occurs throughout the southeast, mainly in the mountains and piedmont. In the wild, it is found in moist to dry forests, and does not like to grow in wet conditions. The leaves have a strong red fall color. Quercus rubra grows well for restoration projects, or as a street tree. Oak acorns are an important food source for much of our wildlife, and oak trees serve as important hosts to much of our butterfly, pollinator, and insect life.
