This deciduous red oak is native to the southeastern United States, mainly in northern Georgia, and is rarely found outside of the southern Appalachian Mountains. It grows on dry granite and sandstone outcrops of mountain slopes, and is often shrubby in the wild. The leaves are shiny green and turn to a rich brown in the fall before staying on the tree throughout the winter. The Georgia Oak also produces round acorns and is occasionally cultivated as a garden or specimen tree. Don't miss out on the chance to add this unique and beautiful tree to your outdoor space.
