Quercus rubra, 18"+ at sale, native to VT, sourced from New York.
Red oak is one of New England's most common and widespread forest trees. It is the tallest and fastest-growing of the oaks, and commonly reaches 65-100 ft in height. It favors sites with deep soils. Humans use the beautiful reddish-white wood for furniture-making, flooring, veneer, and other purposes. Many wildlife make their dens in the hollows of mature trunks, and the acorns are an important food source for deer, woodpeckers, turkey, grouse, waterfowl, and even pigs!
