Description

Nuttal Oak - Quercus texana

 
The Nuttal Oak is a native of the Southeastern and Midwestern parts of the United States. Samuel B. Buckley first classified the Nuttal Oak as a distinct species in 1860. It's Latin name is Quercus texana. The tree can grow in hardiness zones 6 to 9. In the United States, this would include most of the country, with the exception of the southern part of Florida, upstate New York, the part of New England north of Massachusetts and the states that are in the middle, northern chunk of the country. 
 

Nuttal Oak has short leaves. 


It's leaves are about 5 to 6 inches long. Each leaf has about 6 to 11 lobes that are spine-tipped. Compared to other oaks, the leaves are relatively small. Whenever new growth occurs, it is usually maroon-colored. Over the course of a month, the maroon-colored growth eventually turns green as it ages. During the colder months, Nuttal Oaks drop their leaves. In November, their leaves change to a maroon and red. The accorns of Nuttal oaks are generally medium sized, with 30% to 40% of the acorns being covered by their caps. The diameter of the acorns are about 0.075 inches, and the length is about one inch. The tree is known to grow quickly, and it grows to a height of about 40 to 60 feet. It tends to take on a pyramidal shape. When it matures, it spreads out 35 to 50 feet. 

Nuttal Oak is an amazing shade tree. 

Nuttal Oaks are great as shade trees. People who stand under them will find that there is plenty of room. It is a great species of tree to plant in cities. It will not ruin water lines or pipes because it does not develop surface roots. The tree is great for any setting--urban, suburban or rural. 

Nuttal Oaks are very tolerant of most types of soils. It can grow in soils that are wet, well-drained. acidic, alkaline, sandy and loamy. The tree is also somewhat tolerant of drought.
