Quercus shumardii

Shumard’s oak

Quercus shumardii is an oak native across the southeast. It is primarily found in moist bottomland forests, but also occurs in some drier sites. It can tolerate sites that range from a little wet to a little dry, but doesn’t like to be on either extreme. The leaves have a strong red fall color. Quercus shumardii is a good tree to use for restoration plantings, and is often commonly cultivated as a street or shade 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.
