Willow Oak

Willow Oak

Quercus phellos

Oak trees are valued for their size, longevity and ability to grow into a statuesque tree.  Their size makes them excellent trees to use for providing shade and screening of undesirable views. Municipalities favor oaks for use in parks, public spaces and street trees.  The various species offer a wide range of foliage sizes, shapes and fall colors.  The acorns they produce provide a valuable food source for wildlife and also vary in size and shape.  Most of the oak species offered are very site adaptable and fast growing.

The Willow Oak has a very narrow laurel-like leaf providing a very fine texture to this unusual oak.  The Willow Oak also has a great fall color show of yellows and oranges.
