Quercus nutt Nuttall Oak 2 in

One of the most adaptable and fastest growing Oak trees for use in residential and commercial landscapes, the handsome Nuttall Oak grows at a rate of up to 3 feet per year. When all grown up it reach 60 feet tall by 50 feet wide, making it a perfect selection for a shade or street tree. The deeply lobed leaves emerge a vibrant green purple that holds well into summer before turning deep green. Fall brings yellow leaves that turn to brilliant orange and/or red. The large and abundant acorns mature over a two-year period and supply food and shelter for birds and small animals. Very low maintenance and easy to grow, the Nuttall Oak grows in well-drained to wet soils including heavy clay. If you have the space for a large shade tree and want an oak, Nuttall is hard to beat!
