The dense, bright green foliage of the Pin Oak turns a stunning brick red, then brown in autumn. After a cold winter, they tend to have a more intense red colouring. In a sheltered position foliage will 'hang on' through winter. We have five of these trees along our roadside and they are fantastic, they always draw a lot of attention.

The branches naturally form fairly evenly along the straight trunk. The willowy branches have a graceful bow at their tips. Round, flat acorns form in autumn on mature trees. Small, insignificant flowers form in spring. The bark is brown grey and deeply fissured in maturity.

Pin Oak is easy to grow in any well drained soil. Plant in a sunny location. Water in well, they become dry tolerant once established. Pin Oak has a moderate growth rate, growing into a large, pyramid shaped tree. Will reach its full size in 20-30 years.

Pin Oak is a large tree ideal for shade in large gardens and park lands. Common names include Marsh Oak.
