Quercus rubra, commonly known as the red oak, is a large deciduous tree. The leaves are simple, alternate, and have pointed lobes with bristle tips. They are typically dark green in colour during the growing season and turn brilliant shades of red in the Autumn. The bark is characterized by a reddish-brown to greyish-brown colour with shallow furrows and ridges. As the tree matures, the bark develops a more distinctive, rough texture. They are adaptable to a range of soil types and can tolerate a variety of environmental conditions. Commonly used in landscaping and as shade trees due to their attractive foliage and symmetrical growth habit. They are appreciated for their beautiful Autumn Colour. It is an important species for wildlife, as its acorns are a primary food source for various animals, including squirrels, deer, and a variety of birds. This tree species also provides habitat and nesting sites for numerous bird species.
