Quercus macrocarpa is commonly called Bur Oak or Mossycup Oak. It may be the most majestic of all oaks. This slow-growing, large sized, native deciduous tree has a broad-spreading, rounding crown. Its massive size has reached over 100 feet and can easily live 200-300 years! Its Acorn cups are covered with a mossy scale or bur near the rim, hence the common name.
Leathery, dark green leaves turn yellowish-brown in fall. It is native to Ohio and many habitats in central and eastern North America. It is exceedingly adaptable to a variety of soils, and more tolerant of diverse city conditions than other oaks.
