Pin Oak

(Quercus palustris)
An open, rounded tree. In brisk fall weather, the glossy leaves turn yellow, red, and finally russet brown. Native from Massachusetts to Delaware, westward to Wisconsin and Arkansas. Reliable fall color everywhere but the deserts. Moderate to fairly rapid growth to 50-80 feet. This widely used street and lawn tree needs plenty of water, and tolerates poorly drained soil.
