Quercus velutina

Common name: Black Oak

Native plant

Black Oak tends to be found on well-drained sites such as sand or gravel. The leaves are very similar to Red Oak.  Fall color can be red but usually is a tan-brown. Leaves do not persist through winter. Ultimate size is slightly smaller than Red Oak in the Chicago region. As you go east, the Black Oak can reach massive proportions. The pioneers used the bark for yellow dye. We are currently growing a Black x Shingle cross. I am very curious to see if there is such a thing as hybrid vigor. I will let you know more in the future!
