Pin Oak trees are a popular tree that are sometimes overlooked. These are a personal favorite tree of mine for multiple reasons. I love the way they look when mature, they don’t get super wide they stay a little more narrow up and down. These are overall strong native trees that can live quite sometime. They do well in many different kinds of souls and they are one of the fastest growing oak trees there are. The acorns that pin oaks drop are really small so they tend to be much less of a walking hazard than some oak trees like the Bur oak which has very large acorn nuts. The pin oak is the type of tree that stands out from its neighbors. Its distinctive branching pattern sets it apart from other oaks. Homeowners and city foresters like this tree for many reasons: dense shade, tolerance of many soil conditions, heat, soil compaction and air pollution, pleasing to the eye in all seasons, and easy to plant. This fast-growing oak is common in yards, along streets, and throughout parks. We personally have many pin oaks young and old growing on our small family farm. Something I find interesting about pin oak trees is that sometimes they will hold many leaves (around half) even once the leaves have died and turned brown, not all of them always fall in the fall. They are far from an evergreen but the leaves that hold on through most of the winter help become a wind block even in winter, more than a totally bare tree.
