Native tree with fast growth to 75 feet in good soil. Spread of 25 to 40 feet. Fine textured leaves are deeply cut and assume a russet brown or red autumn color. Leave hand on longer than any other hardwood in the winter. The upper branches are upright, the middle branches are horizontal and the lower branches are pendulous, giving this tree a beautiful and graceful pyramidal outline. Acorns are good wildlife food. Makes an excellent specimen as a lawn tree. Particularly good trees to use for lining both sides of a driveway or street, as they hold their leaves almost until spring, and the branches and foliage create a natural canopy. Also good as a windbreak almost year-round. Will tolerate wet soil but prefers moist, rich, acidic, well-drained soil. (3 yr, 18-24 in.)
