Water Oak Tree is a relative to the Red Oak

It is native to the eastern and south-central portions of the United States. You can observe this tree in coastal states as well such as New Jersey and New York. It's common in central states as well as Kentucky, Oklahoma and the southern portion of Missouri. This tree can withstand altitudes up to 1,500 feet.

When this tree is young, its bark will be sleek and brown. As the tree develops, its bark will turn a gray-black with coarse ridges. On the branches, the leaves alternate and will stay on the tree until mid-winter. The upper part of the blade is a dull green, and the underside is a pale blue-green.

Water Oak Tree is observed to be not just a shade tree but also an ornamental tree

It's loved for the beauty and interest it adds to a landscape. As it matures, it developed a sophisticated round shape.

Water Oak Tree is a quick grower; approximately 24 inches every year

The Quercus Nigra loves sunlight but can tolerate some shade as well. It is most fruitful in soils that are loamy, well-drained, wet, acidic, and clay soils. It does well in moist locations but does the best in well-drained areas that don't have much contact with harsh drought. It is also adaptable to the heavy compressed soil.

This tree will attract a variety of wildlife including quail, white-tailed deer, wood ducks, squirrels, wild turkeys and many others. The deer will rely on this tree during the wintertime when food is sparse by consuming buds and young twigs.

The Water Oak transplants very easily and adapts well to new environments. Every nut is held in place by a short cap with little scales on top of it.

The Water Oak Tree is a fast growing tree and can reproduce quickly. The tree can reproduce through wind pollination and the disbursement of its acorns. The water oak is mostly used to restore bottomland and it does not compete well. The reason it is used to restore bottomland is that it can tolerate many soils as long as they are moist. It must have full sunlight to grow and adapt in any of its environments. The water oak blooms in early spring and then has green leaves all summer long. Later in the fall, the leaves change into many different colors like orange, red and yellow. In the winter time, it will lose its leaves until spring. The water oak also produces acorns. This tree is most famous in southern states where it is hot because these trees can provide a lot of shade for one area. The tree can come with intense stand storms the endure wind. This tree produces food for squirrels, turkeys, and even white-tailed deer. For an oak tree, the wood is not as much wanted because it is not as sturdy and durable as other oak trees.
