Quercus imbricaria is commonly known as the Shingle Oak. This native, medium sized deciduous oak typically grows in a conical form to 40-60' tall with the crown broadening and rounding with age. It was historically used by pioneers to make shingles, resulting in its common name.
The smooth-edged, bristle-tipped, narrow green leaves are willow-like, turning yellow to bronze in autumn and persisting through winter. Its dark gray bark is thin when young, becoming ridged and furrowed with age. The wood is distinctly red-orange when cut or split.
Shingle Oak prefers moist, well drained, acidic soil, but will perform well in drier situations. It is considered a low-maintenance tree with good pest resistance, and makes a good sub for Quercus Phellos (Willow Oak).
