Southern Red Oak tree is also called the Spanish Oak tree

It is native to eastern and south-central United States. It is a perennial, woody plant that grows into a medium to a large deciduous tree. This particular tree starts from a small bright orange-brown acorn of 9-16 millimeters long. Their acorns attract small forest creatures like fox squirrels, pheasants, and even turkeys.

Southern Red Oak's active growth period is in the spring and summer where yellow flowers bloom in mid-spring and start to fruit new leaves in summer while ending in autumn

The tree can be propagated by cuttings and is well-adapted to various types of soils including coarse-textured, fine textured, and medium textured. The tree produces about 3 to 5 sharp pointy lobes that appear to be crown-shaped where their middle portion is quite long and slender. Its leaves are 10 to 30 centimeters (4 to 12 inches) long and 6 to 16 centimeters (2.5 to 6.5 inches) wide. The bark is dark brown-colored with some shades of gray.

Southern Red Oak Tree is a very long lived tree

The tree can gain a height of 35 feet after two decades because its seed matures at the end of its second season. A couple of fun facts are that the Southern Red Oak tree occasionally forms hybrids with several other red oaks in the region and requires a minimum root depth of 3 feet! With its long lifespan, your family can surely enjoy this tree’s shade and see its growth for every generation to come.
