Are you looking for a low-maintenance tree that can thrive in eastern and central North America? Consider the Quercus velutina, aka black oak. This versatile tree can grow up to 140 feet tall, making it a dramatic addition to any landscape. With its glossy green leaves, yellow inner bark, and medium-sized acorns, the black oak is a beautiful and functional choice. It's a consistent seed producer, making it a valuable species for reforestation projects. The black oak grows well on well-drained loam and clay soils, and is a major associate in white oak–black oak–northern red oak forests. Make the black oak a centerpiece of your property and enjoy its benefits for years to come.
