Pin Oak Tree (Quercus palustris)


Pin Oak Tree: Quercus palustris, or the pin oak tree, is a tall deciduous shade tree beloved across most of the United States. It enjoys widespread popularity for its stately size, ample shade, and robust health.


The pin oak tree is a North American native species that originated in Canada, New England, and the northern plains. Although it is a cool-weather species, it is also heat tolerant and will thrive in the moderate heat of the upper southern states and southern plains.


Other common names for the pin oak tree are swamp oak and Spanish swamp oak.


The Pin Oak Tree Will Flourish with Little Help From You


In the northern woods of the United States, the pin oak tree enjoys fertile, moist, woodsy soil, warm summer temperatures, and full or partial sunshine. It loves a lot of water, but it is also drought-tolerant. Replicate these conditions when your pin oak tree is young, and it will develop into a hardy tree that will need little help from you later.


When you plant your pin oak tree, find a sunny spot in the yard and give it plenty of space to spread as it grows. Work some mulch or compost into the earth around it to recreate the conditions that make this species flourish in nature--this material gives the pin oak tree essential nutrition for growth. Ensure your pin oak seedling receives about an inch of water each week until it establishes strong roots.


The Pin Oak Tree Provides Ample Shade for Your Yard


Pin oak trees grow to an average height of seventy feet and up to three feet of trunk diameter. As it matures, the crown forms a slightly rounded triangle shape but will round out more at the top in maturity. The bark is gray or light brown, sometimes with a lovely red tinge.


Pin oak leaves are five inches long, elliptic-shaped, medium green, glossy, and have five lobes. They generally turn rust or burgundy in the fall.
