Description
Possibly one of the most underappreciated and misunderstood trees of our Eastern Hardwood Forests: Oaks. The genus Quercus is typically well represented in our healthy forest and yet they’re not embraced for our landscapes. We will take a look at some of these oaks that have been used with success in residential and commercial landscapes as well as some that are actually rare in their native habitat. And oh yes, there is a new reason to grow oaks!
